Temporal Lobe Epilepsy Surgery in Childhood: Rationale for Greater Use
Warren T. Blume
Abstract: Anterior temporal resection may effectively relieve therapy-resistant seizures in children and give social, psychological and economic benefits. Epidemiological and prognostic data demonstrate that this is an under-utilised procedure: although an estimated 677 Ontario children per year would be candidates for anterior temporal resection, only 18 were performed in a 12 month period.
