Abstract

Hemispherectomy techniques have undergone multiple changes. Because of these changes, several current alternatives are described. The need for an extensive procedure in young children with special pediatric requirements is the background for the development of newer and more microsurgically oriented techniques aimed at reducing the intraoperative problems and late postoperative complications. This article reviews the strengths and the disadvantages of the currently used procedures in light of special requirements for hemispheric dysplasias.
