LE CRISI NEL FOLLOW-UP POST-OPERATORIO DI PAZIENTI SOTTOPOSTI AD EMISFERECTOMIA PER EMIMEGALENCEFALIA

Translated title of the contribution: Seizures during the follow-up after hemispherectomy of patients with hemimegalencephaly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hemispherectomy is the choise treatment in patient with hemimegalencephaly and severe epilepsy: Among 14 patients with hemimegalencephaly, 6 patients underwent hemispherectomy, with a good clinical recovery. Nevertheless in 3 patients seizures reappeared after 5-17 months. In one case seizures were subclinical and observed only during long-term EEG monitoring: In two cases, seizures were characterized by limb hypertonia of paretic side, were not accompanied by loss of consciousness, but were associated to an intense crying. A correspondent ictal EEG pattern demonstrated the epileptic origin of the attacks.
