Neurosurgeons of the Functional division of the Federal Neurosurgical Center successfully perform surgical procedures in patients with epilepsy.

Neurosurgeons of the Center started performing surgical procedures with the help of neuro-physiological monitoring.

Thanks to modern equipment allowing performing the mapping of brain epilepsy locus during the surgical procedure, there appeared a possibility to operate patient D. (28 years old) who has been suffering from drug-resistant symptomatic temporal lobe epilepsy from the age of 15 years. In 1999 the patient was operated but the operation performed at that time, didn’t give relief and so far the strokes came up to 8-10 times per month in spite of conducted therapy.

Thanks to intraoperative diagnostics, we expect more stable result. In early intraoperative period the strokes were not registered. 6 patients with epilepsy were operated with the use of such method in our center. It’s too early to draw far-reaching conclusions but 4 patients didn’t register any strokes; frequency and severity of strokes in 1 patient decreased by more than a half.
