Abstract

In our patient population that had undergone antero-temporal lobectomy, we found 20 patients with a unilateral sphenoidal/antero-temporal interictal focus. All patients had normal computed tomography (CT) scans. Invasive recordings with subdural electrode arrays placed over and under the temporal lobe were used in every patient. We found that the sclap interictal focus predicted for all patients that both the interictal sharp waves and ictal onset would be mesiobasal/anterotemporal in location on the subdural arrays. Seventy-five percent of these patients had an excellent outcome with temporal lobectomy.
