Abstract

A series of 101 patients operated on for intractable epilepsy is analyzed with the aim to identify the different factors able to influence the surgical outcome. Three factors seem to affect significantly the prognosis: (1) Presence of localized lesion at the neuroradiological investigations; (2) Presence of single focus at the electrophysiological studies; (3) Completeness of the surgical removal of the lesional functional epileptogenic complex.
