Background

Some patients with temporal lobe epilepsy have bilateral discharges and a few have bilateral medial temporal sclerosis. Stereotactic bilateral radiofrequency thermocoagulation (RFTC) of the amygdalohippocampal complex can terminate seizures or reduce seizure severity in patients with bilateral medial temporal lobe epilepsy (BMTLE).
