Monitoring to guide resective surgery for epilepsy: stereoencephalography versus subdural electrodes

Takeaway

  • Stereoencephalography (SEEG) may yield better outcomes than subdural electrodes (SDE) when invasive monitoring is needed to guide resective surgery (RS) in patients with epilepsy.

Why this matters

  • Large studies directly comparing SEEG and SDE, two options for invasive monitoring to guide RS in patients with epilepsy, are lacking.

  • This systematic review may inform clinicians choices regarding the use of SEEG and SDE.
