Hemispherotomy for paediatric hemispheric epilepsy.
Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery
Publication types: Comparative Study ; Journal Article ; Review
We present here the results of our series of peri-insular hemispherotomy for intractable hemispheric epilepsy. There were 6 children in this series with a mean age of 10.2 years and mean duration of seizures of 7.2 years. The seizure results were excellent in all children and they also showed significant improvement in functional status. This procedure has significant advantages when compared to other forms of hemispherectomy. However, a larger experience with longer periods of follow-up is needed.
