  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Of a series of 526 cases of surgically treated refrac-tory epilepsy, 387 cases were patients with complex partial seizures. Among 118 cases who had no improve-ment by the first operation, to prevent partial seizures, 20 patients underwent reoperation. Of the 20 patients, 12 (60%) were men. The mean age at the first opera-tion was 21.7 years. A retrospective analysis of clinical findings, successive EEG findings, psychological stu-dies, surgical findings and surgical treatment of these patients were made. Following the first operation, com-plex partial seizures reappeared within a mean period of 5.5 months.
