Product Description

Epilepsy
Epilepsy is an intermittent derangement of the nervous system due to a sudden, excessive, disorderly electrical discharge of cerebral neurons. The term epilepsy is derived from the Greek word epilamvanein .Prevalence rate of epilepsy in India is 5.59 per 1000 population with no gender or geographical difference. More than two-thirds of all epilepsy begins in childhood, when seizures can have drastic and devastating results on the child's psyche and development. Recent advances over the past decade in the understanding of pathogenesis mechanisms and in the diagnosis of epilepsy have had a significant impact on every aspect of epilepsy management including surgical management of epilepsy.

Surgical treatment is highly effective in the treatment of many of the epilepsies that have not responded to medical therapy. Nearly 40 percent of children with partial epilepsy are candidates for surgical therapy.

I work in close association with a team. Our Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery team includes Pediatric Neurologists, Pediatric Neurosurgeons, Neuropsychologists and Neuroradiologist. Children with medically intractable epilepsy are extensive evaluations include video-EEG, Neuroimaging like MRI. and Neuropsychological assessments. We conduct monthly meetings to discuss pediatric epilepsy cases in our forum to provide the best surgical management and plan [tailored to the individual’s case]and care. The department is experienced in performing temporal lobectomy, lesionectomy, corpus callostomy and hemispherectomies and placement of vagal nerve stimulator. I also conduct Awake craniotomy when appropriate.

Why epilepsy surgery?
AED is main stay in the treatment. The untoward cognitive side effects of AEDs coupled with the long-term effects of recurrent seizures, reduced quality of life and increased co-morbidities for the majority of patients. So in children with epilepsy where surgical option is available, more and more children are recruited for epilepsy surgery.

Patients with unsatisfactory seizure control often seek alternative care. The number or severity of the seizures may be unacceptable to the patient, family, or treating physician. Other reasons for referral for epilepsy surgery include the results of diagnostic tests that may show a structural focal brain lesion, unsatisfactory psychosocial adaptation due to poor seizure control, unacceptable sedation, or other drug side effects.

The morbidity and mortality of seizures include accidental injury; cognitive decline; sudden death; and psychological, social, and vocational impairment. Accidental injuries commonly include fractures, burns, dental injuries, lacerations, and head injuries. Cognitive decline over time has been demonstrated to occur in patients with certain epilepsy syndromes who have recurrent convulsive seizures or episodes of status epilepticus. Both depression and anxiety are very common among patients with medically refractory epilepsy. Vocational issues include inability to be employed or, if employed, underemployment.Prolonged anticonvulsant drug therapy also affects cognition, memory, behaviorand motor developmentin substantial number of children.

Type of surgery
Epilepsy surgery may be divided into two major categories: Resective and Functional. The aim of Functional surgery is to decrease seizure frequency.
Resective surgeries
The aim of resective surgery is to remove the epileptogenic zone and render the patient seizure free. Surgeries done are:
1. Anteromedial Temporal Resection [AMTR],
2. Selective Amygdylohippocapectomy
3. Lesionectomy [Temporal and Extra-temporal]
