Abstract:

Post-epilepsy surgery antiepileptic drug discontinuation (AED) practices remain unclear and little evidence about the optimum timing exists. In the present study, we reviewed the types of surgery for epilepsy and their outcome. The current concepts for discontinuation of AED after surgery are presented and all contributing factors that should be taken into consideration are discussed.

Keywords: Epilepsy surgery, anti-epileptic drug, outcome, epilepsy, seizure, treatment.
