This seminar will provide an overview of the management of tumor-related seizures and refractory epilepsy. We will discuss how to optimize seizure control during surgical resections, including the use of pre- and intraoperative electrophysiological approaches, as well as decision making resection strategies such as when to perform an amygdalohippocampectomy. The use and efficacy of pre-operative and post-operative anti-epileptic medications also will be discussed.
