Language representation in children with medically intractable epilepsy
Darren S. Kadis
Written in English
Language representation was investigated in 25 children and adolescents with medically intractable epilepsy using intracarotid sodium amobarbital procedure (IAP), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and extraoperative stimulation mapping (ESM), prior to surgical intervention. Findings across all procedures indicated elevated atypical (right or bilateral) language representation in this population. ESM identified left-hemisphere language sites outside classical language areas, suggesting ipsilateral reorganization. Possible relationships between language representation and several demographic and seizure-related variables were explored. ESM, IAP, and fMRI yielded largely consistent findings, although the measures were not simply redundant; each technique provides distinct data and unique opportunities for language study. It was concluded that the multiple language mapping procedures worked best together---data provided by one measure could benefit later investigations.

Ann Neurol. ; Abstract. Children with epilepsy have a range of cognitive ability, from profound global impairment to superior skills. Nevertheless, cognitive and behavioral difficulties have a higher base rate in children with epilepsy than in healthy children, and in some children, cognitive difficulties may predate first seizure (Fastenau et al., ).Cited by: 2.
Children with complex partial epilepsy have more reading difficulties than children with idiopathic generalized epilepsy although both exhibit poor reading performances [1, 23]. Furthermore, children with left temporal discharges show lower reading levels than children with right temporal lobe epilepsy [24, 25]. Surgery of epilepsy is highly effective to stop seizures in well-selected individuals, and seizure freedom is the most desirable result of epilepsy treatment due to the positive improvements in psychosocial function and the elimination of excess mortality associated with intractable epilepsy.

The presurgical evaluation of patients with medically refractory seizures is critical in the preparation of the patient for epilepsy surgery.
The main objectives of this presurgical evaluation are to identify the origin of the seizure and to evaluate the feasibility of performing surgery safely with minimal risk of producing adverse neurologic or neuropsychological consequences.

At the global level, it is estimated that nearly 70 million people suffer from epilepsy and the prevalence of epilepsy across the globe is estimated to be per 1, population.[1,10] As per the GBD analysis forepilepsy accounted Language representation in children with medically intractable epilepsy book % of the global burden or more than 17 million DALYs and nearly 90% of these were reported from low and middle-income.

Ann NeurolAccording to the Epilepsy Foundation, epilepsy affects three million people in the U.S. and 50 million tic seizures may be tied to a brain injury or genetics, but for 70 percent of epilepsy patients, the cause is unknown.
The Epilepsy Therapy Project notes that 10 percent of people will have seizures in their lifetime. Epilepsy affects more thanchildren under the age. Duchowny has made important contributions to the understanding of the role of surgery in the treatment of children with medically refractory epilepsy.
Through his scholarly activity and published findings, he has demonstrated that epilepsy surgery is a safe and effective treatment option for properly selected children. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) is one of the most common and intractable forms of seizure disorders, and HHV-6 has been implicated as a possible cause in both children and adults.
Patients with MTLE may be more likely to have a history of FS as infants, a frequent complication of primary HHV-6 infection (Fotheringham et al., b).
