OBJECTIVE Antiepileptic treatment of brain tumor patients mainly depends on the individual physician's choice rather than on well-defined predictive factors. We investigated the predictive value of defined clinical parameters to formulate a model of risk estimations for subpopulations of brain tumor patients. METHODS We enclosed 650 patients > 18 years of age who underwent brain tumor surgery and included a number of clinical data.
