Surgical techniques for investigating the role of the insula in epilepsy: a review NEUROSURGICAL FOCUS Desai, A., Bekelis, K., Darcey, T. M., Roberts, D. W. 2012; 32 (3)


Intracranial electroencephalography monitoring of the insula is an important tool in the investigation of the insula in medically intractable epilepsy and has been shown to be safe and reliable. Several methods of placing electrodes for insular coverage have been reported and include open craniotomy as well as stereotactic orthogonal and stereotactic anterior and posterior oblique trajectories. The authors review each of these techniques with respect to current concepts in insular epilepsy.
