Abstract
BACKGROUND: In spite of advances in noninvasive localization of seizure foci, some cases of intractable limbic epilepsy still require invasive recordings in order to identify the site of seizure onset. This necessitates a safe and reliable method for placing depth and subdural electrodes in the mesial temporal and orbitofrontal regions. The University of Florida has devised a system that utilizes CRW-based stereotactic placement of bitemporal depth electrodes in conjunction with placement of subdural strips over the inferolateral temporal lobe and orbitofrontal cortex. This report describes the surgical technique and initial clinical experience using this method...
