Structural brain network abnormalities to predict seizure recurrence following epilepsy surgery


  • Node abnormalities are a marker of surgical outcomes and seizure severity at 1-year post-surgery, may be associated with likelihood of long-term seizure relapse, and improve prediction performance when combined with clinical data.

Why this matters ?

    Epilepsy surgery in drug-resistant focal epilepsies is underused, partially due to outcome uncertainty. Being able to better predict surgical outcomes is likely to aid in better patient selection.
