Comparisons of the seizure-free outcome and visual field deficits between anterior temporal lobectomy and selective amygdalohippocampectomy: a systematic review and meta-analysis


Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is a well-known constellation of epilepsy frequently causing drug-resistant focal seizure. Surgical therapy is regarded as an effective and well-established treatment for intractable TLE [1]. Over the years, anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL), including extensive resection of the lateral cortex as well as the amygdala and hippocampal formation, has been the most widely used surgical procedure with a seizure freedom rate of 62% to 83%, which is mainly influenced by the duration of follow-up [2].
