Aggressive versus limited resection is an often-debated topic in epilepsy surgery. There are two inherent questions within this debate: (1) Can a more limited resection yield seizure freedom rates similar to those afforded by wider/more aggressive resection, with lower rates of neurological complications? (2) Does wider/more aggressive resection increase seizure freedom rates, with tolerable neurological complications rates? Further, if more limited resection has a lower seizure freedom rate… CONTINUE READING
