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)
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)
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)
