Memory outcome 2 years after anterior temporal lobectomy in patients with drug-resistant epilepsy

  • di

Purpose: Memory decline is often observed after anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL), particularly in patients with dominant hemisphere resections. However, the follow-up length has been 1 year or less in most studies. Our aims were to examine postoperative memory changes over a longer period and to identify baseline demographic and clinical predictors of memory outcome.
