Fentanyl-droperidol technique is the choice for epilepsy surgery. It requires intraoperative electrocorticography (ECoG), but a large dose of fentanyl is needed for this technique. On the other hand, sevoflurane reportedly may be beneficial for intraoperative ECoG. To reveal whether the combined technique with fentanyl and sevoflurane is beneficial for epilepsy surgery, we investigated ECoG in 10 patients with intractable temporal lobe epilepsy without sevoflurane, with 0.5 minimum alveolar… CONTINUE READING
