Imaging and Stereotactic Electroencephalography Functional Networks to Guide Epilepsy Surgery.
Epilepsy surgery is a potentially curative treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy that has remained underutilized both due to inadequate referrals and incomplete localization hypotheses. The complexity of patients evaluated for epilepsy surgery has increased, thus new approaches are necessary to treat these patients. The paradigm of epilepsy surgery has evolved to match this challenge, now considering the entire seizure network with the goal of disrupting it through resection, ablation, neuromodulation, or a combination. The network paradigm has the potential to aid in identification of the seizure network as well as treatment selection.
