New computational tools help in better epilepsy surgery results, finds studies by Amrita Hospital

Mumbai, 29 th  November:   Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders affecting about 60 lakh people in India. In 70 % of these patients, seizures can be controlled with medical treatment. However, 30 % of patients, (approximately 16 lakh patients in India), have drug-resistant epilepsy which is a severe form of epilepsy that does not respond to medical treatment. Surgery can be used to remove the 'epileptic focus' from where the seizure originates in patients who have not been helped by medical treatment. A major challenge in epilepsy surgery is the accurate identification of this ‘epileptic focus’.    To overcome this challenge, the Centre for Epilepsy at Amrita Hospital, Kochi conducted multiple studies between the years 2015 and 2019 in around 100 difficult-to-treat epilepsy patients. They developed and implemented new computational tools which can accurately identify the epileptic focus.     Said Dr. Siby Gopinath, Clinical Professor, Amrita Advanced Centre
