Selective Amygdalohippocampectomy: Indications and Follow-up


Wieser, Heinz Gregor (1991). Selective Amygdalohippocampectomy: Indications and Follow-up. Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, 18(S4):617-627.

Abstract

Selective amygdalohippocampectomy (AHE) offers a real chance of cure only in patients with welldefined, precisely localized “epileptogenic area”, i.e. seizure focus. Therefore, a priori only a small proportion of all patients with epilepsy can meet the criteria for selective surgical interventions. From the evidence in patients meeting the criteria for AHE, we conclude that this technique is to be preferred to the “standard” anterior temporal lobectomy and represents a more selective but still effective surgical treatment of epilepsy.
