SLAH is less invasive than open resection, but there are limited series reporting its safety and efficacy, particularly in patients without clear evidence of mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS).

They are considered common clinical signs in temporal lobe seizures, but their anatomofunctional mechanisms are not established. We took the opportunity of presurgical intracerebral recordings to study the relations between the occurrence of OAAs and temporal/spatial features of ictal activities.
