Lobe Epilepsy Surgery in Childhood: Rationale for Greater Use
Anterior temporal resection may effectively relieve therapy-resistant
seizures in children and give social, psychological and economic
benefits. Epidemiological and prognostic data demonstrate
that this is an under-utilised procedure: although an estimated
677 Ontario children per year would be candidates for anterior
temporal resection, only 18 were performed in a 12 month period.
