Intracranial electroencephalography seizure spread rate predicts refractory temporal lobe epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Rapid seizure spread on intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) may predict which patients undergoing anteromedial temporal resection for temporal lobe epilepsy are most likely to have postoperative seizure recurrence.

Why this matters

  • Patients with rapid seizure spread on iEEG may require more extensive surgical resection or neurostimulation electrode implantation to achieve freedom from seizures.
