PURPOSE The introduction of new technologies in the clinical practice have greatly decreased the number of patients submitted to invasive recordings. On the other hand, some patients with refractory temporal lobe epilepsy have normal MR scans or bilateral potentially epileptogenic lesions. This paper reports the results of invasive neurophysiology and surgical outcome in such patients. METHOD Sixteen patients were studied. Eleven had normal MRI (Group I) and five had bilateral mesial temporal… CONTINUE READING
