Comparison of the intracarotid amobarbital procedure and interictal cerebral 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography scans in refractory temporal lobe epilepsy.

Abstract

The relationship between interictal focal hypometabolism determined by 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) scans and memory function with the intracarotid amobarbital procedure (IAP) was evaluated in 23 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. All patients underwent prolonged EEG/video monitoring. The epileptogenic focus was defined by… (More)
