The definitive reference for pediatric epilepsy surgery Written by internationally recognized authorities in pediatric epilepsy surgery, this cutting-edge book provides essential information about the preoperative assessment of and surgical approaches to the treatment of epilepsy in children. The book opens with an overview of pediatric epilepsy followed by four main sections detailing preoperative assessment, surgical approaches and techniques, outcomes, and recent promising advances.
The authors present numerous approaches for managing temporal lobe epilepsy and extratemporal lobe epilepsy and guide clinicians through various surgical techniques for hemispherectomy, disconnection procedures, neuromodulation, and more.

Highlights:

  • Complete coverage of the selection of surgical candidates, including young patients with congenital or early lesions
  • Detailed discussion of the latest surgical techniques such as hippocampal transection, cortical and deep brain stimulation, and radiosurgery
  • Comprehensive presentation of all major hemispherectomy and hemispherotomy techniques
  • More than 100 illustrations, including 85 in full color, to elucidate key concepts
Ideal for pediatric neurosurgeons, epilepsy surgeons, and pediatric epileptologists, this authoritative text is also a valuable reference for clinicians, residents, and fellows in neurology, neuroradiology, neuropsychology, and neurophysiology with an interest in pediatric epilepsy surgery.
