Due to a limited number of patients with drug-resistant parietal lobe epilepsy in surgical series, there are insufficient data about long-term seizure outcome following surgery restricted to the parietal lobe. We performed a meta-analysis to asses long-term outcomes in patients with parietal lobe epilepsy who underwent surgery confined to the parietal lobe or resection with major involvement of the parietal cortex.
