Benefits Seen With Earlier Surgery for Epilepsy


A Cleveland Clinic study suggests that early resection using frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) surgery may improve seizure outcomes. Age younger than 18 and epilepsy duration of less than 5 years were both associated with better seizure-related outcomes. Left-sided resections and acute postoperative seizures predicted a poorer prognosis.
