Özet

Purpose: There is evidence of autonomic dysregulation in temporal lobe epilepsy. The structures removed during temporal lobectomy are important centers of central cardiovascular control; therefore surgery may conceivably alter the cardiovascular autonomic function. The effects of temporal lobectomy on autonomic cardiac control are controversial. We investigated the effects of temporal lobectomy on heart rate variability (HRV) in the early and late postoperative periods.
