http://www.e-pilepsy.eu/czech/co-je-epiletochirurgie
Pokud na epileptické záchvaty dostatečně nezabírají antiepileptika, je u některých pacientů vhodné zvážit chirurgický zákrok.
Nejčastěji používaným typem operace mozku při epileptochirurgii jsou resekční výkony. Při takovém zákroku se odstraní část mozku, která způsobuje záchvaty.Tato operace je tedy vhodná pouze pro pacienty, u kterých záchvat začíná v jedné určité části mozku. Tento typ epilepsie se nazývá ložisková (fokální).

http://www.e-pilepsy.eu/czech/jaky-je-princip-operace
Elektrody jsou zavedeny na operačním sále a pacient je pak po operaci převezen na video-EEG monitorovací jednotku, kde je připojen na EEG přístroj, a jsou zaznamenány záchvaty.

http://www.e-pilepsy.eu/czech/co-je-epiletochirurgie/kdy-prichazi-operace-v-uvahu

  • Záchvaty vznikají v jedné části mozku, která je chirurgicky přístupná a může být odstraněna, aniž by byly vážně poškozeny důležité mozkové funkce jako řeč, zrak nebo hybnost. ;
