Bottom Line: This review summarises exciting recent and forthcoming advances that will impact on the surgical management of epilepsy in the near future.This does not cover the current accepted diagnostic methodologies or surgical treatments that are routinely practiced today.The content of this review was derived from a PubMed literature search, using the key words 'Epilepsy Surgery', 'Neuromodulation', 'Neuroablation', 'Advances', between 2010 and November 2013.

JNNP2013307069F3: Closed-loop stimulation, with a depth electrode in the right hippocampus and a subdural grid over the inferior surface of the temporal lobe.35

Mentions: Clearly, CLS requires more study, with outstanding questions on seizure detection algorithms, targets and stimulation parameters, and long-term follow-up. However, this remains an exciting prospect as a further treatment modality in refractory epilepsy (figure 3).
