Abstract

Purpose: To investigate the factors which influence the persistence of interictal epileptiform discharges (IED) after epilepsy surgery. Methods: In this retrospective study we included patients with intractable medial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) who underwent presurgical evaluation including high-resolution MRI and video-EEG monitoring with seizure registration prior to an anterior temporal lobe resection. The postsurgical outcome was assessed by our team 6 months and 2 years after the surgery. Results: One hundred and forty-seven patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The mean age of the patients was 31.8 (range 16-59 years). In 22 patients (15%) interictal epileptiform discharges were present on the postoperative routine EEG. We found that both the preoperative spike frequency (P
