Peri-insular hemispherotomy: potential pitfalls and avoidance of complications.
Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery
Publication types: Case Reports
Techniques for cerebral hemispherectomy have progressively evolved towards more disconnection and less excision over the last 50 years. Peri-insular hemispherotomy (PIH), as described by the senior author, has the maximal ratio of disconnection to excision among all procedures for hemispheric epilepsy. In this study, we focus on surgical complications and intraoperative anatomical observations during PIH over the last 10 years. Based on this experience, the procedure has undergone some modifications, which we detail herein.
