Sirs: Because of the increasing attention to the potential therapeutic role of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in intractable epilepsy [2, 4], the aim of this study was to find out whether patients with medically refractory epilepsy due to cortical dysplasia could benefit from low-frequency rTMS. 1 Hz rTMS have been able to decrease motor cortex excitability [1]. Lower stimulation frequencies (0,33 and 0.5 Hz) have been successfully employed in the treatment of seizures in… CONTINUE READING
