Verbal memory deficits remain a major complication of dominant hemisphere temporal lobectomy for epilepsy. The extent of this deficit was assessed preoperatively and 1 month and 1 year postoperatively with the Wechsler Verbal Memory Scale (WMSV) in 14 adults undergoing left temporal lobectomy. Intraoperative localization of language and verbal memory was also performed by electrical stimulation mapping. The WMSV score decreased an average of 22% at 1 month (13 cases), and 11% at 1 year (10… CONTINUE READING
