Abstract: Introduction Surgical planning for refractory medial temporal lobe epilepsy (rMTLE) relies on seizure localization by ictal electroencephalography (EEG). Multiple factors impact the number of seizures recorded. We evaluated whether seizure freedom correlated to the number of seizures recorded, and the related factors. Methods We collected data for 32 patients with rMTLE who underwent anterior temporal lobectomy. Primary analysis evaluated number of seizures captured as a predictor of surgical outcome.

“…Perhaps, therefore, presurgical ictal video EEG can be completed with fewer seizures captured (Garcia Gracia et al, 2014; Sainju et al, 2012; Struck et al, 2015). Indeed, in the logistical regression analysis (Table 2), vEEG did not predict outcome at the 3 time points.…”

“…In lesional neocortical epilepsy, a lateralised and localised seizure pattern on ictal scalp EEG is associated with a favourable individual outcome [2]. The required number of seizures monitored to ensure a reliable assessment of seizure semiology and ictal onset EEG patterns varies, depending – among other factors – on the pre‐test probability of unifocal epilepsy [3-5]. Presurgical LT‐VEEG often involves controlled provocation of seizures, which increases its yield but not without risks.…”

“…Ambulation is often carefully restricted to prevent seizure‐related falls. These factors, combined with an average length of stay of >4 days, which is more than the >3 days of reduced mobility reported to amplify VTE risk, may result in an underrecognized high level of VTE risk for patients in the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU).…”
