Epilepsy Intractable Electrodes


Manikanta Deva*

A useful but underutilised tool in the preoperative assessment of refractory epilepsy is epidural electrodes. In recent years, we have shifted to using cylindrical epidural 1-contact electrodes (1-CE) rather than Peg electrodes. Because explanations can be given at the patient's bedside, 1-CEs are more flexible. Here, we discuss our 1-CE experience and the associated technical information. This retrospective study comprised 56 patients with intractable epilepsy who underwent epidural electrode insertion for presurgical assessment at the Department of Neurosurgery at Charité University Hospital between September 2011 and July 2021.
