Abstract

The goal of the study was to assess the long-term seizure and neuropsychologic outcomes of patients with tuberous sclerosis and refractory epilepsy who received vagus nerve stimulator implantation. Eleven patients with a follow-up period of at least 12 months were studied retrospectively. The mean age at the time of implantation was 14 years (range, 2-35). Seizure outcome was rated as class I (>80% seizure frequency reduction) in 1 (9%), class II (50-79% reduction) in 7 (63%), and class III (
