Approximately 50% of patients will become seizure free following surgery for intractable epilepsy caused by malformations of cortical development. Another 20% have only rare seizures. The outcome is dependent on the completeness of the resection as determined by MR imaging and electroencephalography. The surgical procedures performed for malformations of cortical development in infants, children, and adults include lobar and multilobar resections or hemispherectomy.
