Abstract

Change in visual confrontation naming was examined following left (speech dominant) anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) as a function of surgical technique and patient characteristics. Two hundred seventeen patients with intractable left temporal lobe epilepsy were selected according to standard criteria across 8 centers, and combined into 4 surgical approaches to ATL: (a) tailored resections with intraoperative mapping of eloquent cortex, (b) tailored resections with extraoperative mapping, (c) standard resections with sparing of superior temporal gyms, and (d) standard resections including excision of superior temporal gyrus. Changes in visual confrontation naming were examined with an index of reliable change derived from an independent sample of 90 nonsurgical patients with complex partial seizures. Results showed significant decline in visual confrontation naming following left ATL, regardless of surgical technique. Across surgical approaches, the risk for decline in visual confrontation naming was associated with a later age of seizure onset and more extensive resection of lateral temporal neocortex.
