Patients with medically intractable temporal lobe epilepsy are potential candidates for anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL), in which epileptogenic temporal lobe tissue is localized and surgically removed. This surgical approach can eliminate or drastically reduce seizures in the majority of patients. The authors used a decision-analysis model to examine the cost-effectiveness of a surgical evaluation and treatment protocol for medically intractable temporal lobe epilepsy. This model compared a… CONTINUE READING
