 en CASE REPORT - Omental Transplantation for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy : Report of Two Cases
H. Rafael, R. Mego, P. Moromizato, W. Garcia


The authors present two patients, with poorly controlled temporal lobe epilepsy, who received transplants of omental tissue on the anterior perforated space and left temporal lobe. At present, 26 months after the operation, the first patient has improved about 85 percent; whereas the second patient has complete control of seizures nine months after the operation. These clinical results indicate that epileptic seizures can be reduced or aborted with this new surgical modality (reconstructive technique).
