This reference on the surgical treatment of the epilepsies presents a global view of contemporary approaches to presurgical evaluation, surgical treatment, and postsurgical assessment. The contributors offer comprehensive guidelines on patient selection and on use of new EEG techniques, magnetoencephalography, positron emission tomography, SPECT, and other diagnostic studies in presurgical evaluation. The book details the most effective surgical techniques, presents extensive data on surgical outcome, and discusses strategies for preventing and managing complications. A series of appendices includes guidelines for establishing an epilepsy surgery programme and describes the protocols for surgery at 23 leading centres worldwide. It also provides practical information on instrumentation, including the specifications of commercially available instruments and devices.
