Abstract

Purpose: The determination of prognostic factors is important for predicting outcome after epilepsy surgery. We investigated the factors related to surgical outcome within a homogeneous group of patients suffering from pathologically proven mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS), and compared Engel's outcome classification system with the latest one proposed by the ILAE.
