Abstract

The syndrome of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) is a well-defined clinical entity that responds to surgical treatment in a considerable number of patients. Although it has been subjected to intensive clinical research, few investigators have published the ictal scalp EEG findings and looked for specific features that might predict postoperative outcome. This study was designed to examine ictal scalp EEG characteristics in detail, in a group of patients with pathologically confirmed hippocampal sclerosis (HS).
