Updated 'stereo EEG' workflow simplifies planning of epilepsy surgery
Date:3/12/2013

Philadelphia, Pa. (March 12, 2013) For patients with "drug-resistant" epilepsy requiring surgery, an updated stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) technique provides a more efficient process for obtaining critical data for surgical planning, according to a study in the March issue of Neurosurgery, official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. The journal is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

"SEEG is a safe and accurate procedure for invasive assessment of the epileptogenic zone," according to the new report by Dr. Francesco Cardinale of Niguarda Ca' Granda Hospital, Milan, and colleagues. Their "updated workflow" combines sophisticated imaging data reconstructions and robot-assisted surgery, "providing essential information in the most complex cases of drug-resistant epilepsy."

Stereo EEG Technique Updated and Simplified

The researchers describe the development of and initial experience with an updated SEEG technique for planning epilepsy surgery. The concept of SEEG is not new. Originally developed by French researchers named Talairach and Bancaud, SEEG uses electrodes implanted in the brain to localize the epileptogenic zonethe area in which seizures originate. The traditional SEEG technique includes two surgical steps: 3-D imaging of the brain blood vessels (stereotactic angiography) followed by electrode implantation.

Over the last few years, Dr. Cardinale and colleagues have been working to develop an updated SEEG workflow allowing a one-step surgical technique. Before surgery, the patient undergoes 3-D magnetic resonance imaging and 3-D digital subtraction a
