In the stereo-electro-encephalography (SEEG) methodology developed by Talairach and Bancaud in Sainte-Anne Hospital in Paris, France, the objective of placing depth electrode recordings in presurgical evaluation is to study the spatial and temporal organization of a seizure. This defines for each patient the cortical onset zone, the propagation pattern of the seizure, and the possible involvement of eloquent areas of the cortex. This methodology requires a meticulous stereotactic surgical technique. We report here the SEEG methodology, surgical technique, and morbidity.
