Responsive neurostimulation: a new hope for patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy?

Takeaway

  • Responsive neurostimulation can be considered an effective treatment option for patients with drug-resistant regional neocortical epilepsy.

Why this matters

    Resective surgery is not always feasible in patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy with an extensive (regional) neocortical seizure-onset zone, so alternative treatments are needed.
