Introduction: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the neuropsychological outcomes of patients with medically intractable unilateral mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) due to hippocampal sclerosis (HS) treated either by anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) or selective amygdalohippocampectomy

for temporal lobe epilepsy: promising results in 16 patients.
Li, assisted in the plaintiff's selective amygdalohippocampectomy
After reading your article, I found it pertains to my scenario a great deal--this being the recent selective amygdalohippocampectomy
I had to try and bring my epilepsy under control.
Until the 1990s, anterior temporal lobectomy, or amygdalohippocampectomy
, accounted for more than two thirds of all surgical procedures used to treat epilepsy. Within the past 10 years, focal neocortical resections, `lesionectomies,' and hemispherectomies have been used increasingly more often to treat intractable seizures in some of the patients most refractory to drug therapy that is, infants and children with infantile spasms and intractable seizures that begin in the first years--often the first weeks--of life.[3,4] This radical form of neurosurgical intervention has provided pathologists with unique and challenging tissue specimens, whose range was well described in an article by Frater et al, which appeared in the April issue of the ARCHIVES.
Extra-dimensional versus intradimensional set shifting performance following frontal lobe excisions, temporal lobe excisions or amygdalohippocampectomy
The principal purpose of the IAP is to determine cerebral localization for language and to determine whether the contralateral hemisphere is capable of supporting language and memory following amygdalohippocampectomy
. Unilateral or bilateral injections may be administered.
3) underwent left temporal lobectomy + amygdalohippocampectomy
; another case (case no.
Foramen ovale electrode technique provided good neurophysiological information in candidates for selective amygdalohippocampectomy
. So knowledge of the exact topography and morphometry of the Foramen ovale electrodes is required for a more precise anatomo-electroclinical correlation of seizures.
