Complete resection of low-grade epilepsy-associated tumours may predict more favourable outcomes

Takeaway

  • Surgical resection of low-grade epilepsy-associated tumours (LEATs) is associated with high rates of freedom from seizures 2 years post-surgery, and many of these patients may be able to discontinue antiepileptic drugs.

Why this matters

  • The optimal timing for surgical resection of LEATs is unclear.
