Comprehensive Paediatric Epilepsy Unit
The last two decades have brought new understanding about different epilepsy syndromes in pediatric age group,
and emergence of a variety of new antiepileptic drugs which can be used in children. Unlike adults, many
                                neurodegenerative/ metabolic / genetic conditions can present with seizures in
                                children. Assessment of these children by a team trained in evaluation of those
                                conditions is essential to treat them appropriately.

                                   Therefore, our Hospital has started a "comprehensive pediatric epilepsy unit"
                                   with an aim to provide individualized, comprehensive care to children with
                                   epilepsy. The following special services are available in our unit. Apart from the
                                   ones already indicated in the previous section.

                                   •Short term video EEG, and Long term video telemetry

                                   •Detailed diagnostic work-up for neuro metabolic/genetic conditions

•Multidisciplinary evaluation with neuropsychology/speech and language/occupational therapist assessment.

•Management of co-morbid conditions associated with epilepsy like autistic spectrum disorders and attention
deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Epilepsy Monitoring Facility

The Epilepsy Monitoring (EM), a fundamental part of the Comprehensive
Epilepsy Centre, is a specialized facility equipped with dedicated
simultaneous video and EEG monitoring equipment linked by computer
network to facilitate rapid and real-time examination of the recordings.
Seizures are recorded and examined by our epilepsy specialists so that proper
diagnosis can be made and the best treatment options determined. The
Epilepsy Monitoring Unit operates 24 hours a day. Seven days a week.
Epilepsy monitoring is performed by highly trained & experienced team of
neurologists and technologists to identify the focus of seizure.

Epilepsy Surgery Programme
Epilepsy is a condition that can be well controlled in a vast majority of
patients. However, 5-10% patients do not achieve adequate seizure control
despite trial of best anti-epileptic drug combinations. Such patients are categorized as having refractory or
intractable Epilepsy. These patients require special evaluation for treatments other than medical management
alone. Carefully selected patients with intractable epilepsy can have a gratifying outcome in majority of cases. The
key points that enable proper selection of cases include gratifying outcome in majority of cases. The key points that
enable proper selection of cases include:
•Concordant demonstration of epileptogenic zone in all investigations listed above. For example, if structural
abnormality is visible on high-Quality MRI corresponding to video EEG localization and SPECT abnormality

•Assessment of risk of surgery: taking into account the location of epileptogenic zone, the surgical procedure should
have low risk of fresh deficit

• Once the above two conditions are met, the patient can be further counselled and prognosticated

•Keeping in mind the specific situation. For example, temporal lesions have higher success rates than extra
temporal. Similarly, cases wherein MRI shows a lesion have higher seizure freedom chances compared to those in
which MRI is completely normal.

Surgical procedures for Epilepsy


We have a skilled team capable of performing all epilepsy procedures. Depending on the clinical indication, one of
the following surgical procedures is chosen for treatment.
