Epilepsy surgery is defined as any neurosurgical intervention whose pri­ mary objective is to relieve medically intractable epilepsy (European Fed­ eration of Neurological Societies Task Force 2000). The aim of epilepsy surgery is to reduce the number and intensity of seizures, minimise neuro­ logical morbidity and antiepileptic drug (AED) toxicity, and improve quality of life. By definition, epilepsy surgery does not include normal surgical treatment of intracranial lesions where the primary goal is to di­ agnose and possibly remove the pathological
