Temporal lobe surgery bears the risk of a decline of neuropsychological functions. Stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy (SAHE) represents an alternative to mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) surgery. This study compared neuropsychological results with MRI volumetry of the residual hippocampus. We included 35 patients with drug-resistant(More)
We compared stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy (SAHE) with microsurgical amygdalohippocampectomy (AHE) in a group of 33 patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy in terms of hippocampal and amygdalar volume reductions and clinical outcome. In 23 subjects treated by SAHE, the hippocampal volume decreased by 58.0% (20.0; median, quartile(More)
OBJECTIVES Minimally invasive procedures for treating temporal lobe epilepsy have been investigated recently, namely stereotactic and gamma knife amygdalohippocampectomy (AHE). However, the results are not fully satisfactory. Our aim was to evaluate efficacy and side-effects of stereotactic AHE mimicking the neurosurgical procedure in terms of extent of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical, EEG, and brain imaging findings in an adult case series of patients with de novo refractory status epilepticus (SE) occurring after a febrile illness. METHODS A retrospective study (2010-2013) was undertaken with the following inclusion criteria: (1) previously healthy adults with refractory SE; (2) seizure onset(More)
The epilepsies are a frequent group of neurologic disorders. We have witnessed significant advances in their medical treatment recently. About 70 % of newly diagnosed patients are rendered seizure-free. Antiepileptic drug treatment has become more complex. The choice of antiepileptic drug is based on seizure type. However, special patient's needs (drug(More)

Temporal lobe epilepsy is the most common type of focal epilepsy diagnosed in adult patients. According to the location of seizure generation it is classified as mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and neocortical lateral lobe epilepsy. Diagnosis of temporal lobe epilepsy can be proved by the combination of the clinical manifestation of partial complex seizures,(More)
