Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a non-invasive method to measure cerebral tissue oxygenation continuously with an adhesive optode system which can be easily placed on the skin. We coupled NIRS with video-electroencephalography (video-EEG) during the presurgical evaluation of two patients with intractable localization-related epilepsy of mesial temporal origin. Cerebral oxygen saturation was measured either ipsilaterally (three seizures) or contralaterally (four seizures) to the primary… CONTINUE READING
