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.
