Long-Term Outcome of Resective Epilepsy Surgery in Patients With Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

OBJECTIVE: Researchers aimed to evaluate the long-term outcome of resective epilepsy surgery in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).

METHODS: This study reviews the case reports of 90 patients with LGS who had undergone resective surgery between 2003 and 2014 at the Severance Children’s Hospital and managed them for a minimum period of 2 years.

CONCLUSIONS: Resective surgery is a viable option in some patients to treat seizures that are associated with LGS, with a high probability of seizure control and better adaptive function.
