Abstract

Thirty-five patients with partial complex seizures and two patients with generalized epilepsy were treated by stereotactic radiofrequency lesions. Follow-up from 2 to 13 years was available in 30 patients. The stereotactic targets in patients with partial complex seizures were: a) Amygdala; b) Ammon's horns; c) parahippocampal gyrus; d) Fornix. Depending on scalp EEG and depth electrode studies, each patient had one or more target coagulated, unilaterally or bilaterally. In the 2 cases of generalized epilepsy, bilateral Forel field lesions were performed. Late surgical results are discussed in relation to the depth EEG studies and the number and site of stereotactic lesions.
