Withdrawal of Antiseizure Medication After Surgery: a prediction model for seizure recurrence risk


  • Withdrawal of Antiseizure Medication (ASM) After Surgery model, using clinical predictors such as postoperative focal non-motor-aware seizures, can provide an estimated risk of seizure relapse in individuals starting ASM withdrawal after epilepsy surgery.

Why this matters

  • Postoperative ASM withdrawal has its associated benefits and risks. Currently there is a lack of prognostic tools to predict outcomes of ASM withdrawal following epilepsy surgery.

  • This prediction model could support informed decision-making for clinicians and patients alike.
