Health-related quality of life, mood, and patient satisfaction after epilepsy surgery in Sweden--a prospective controlled observational study.

Taft C, Sager Magnusson E, Ekstedt G, Malmgren K - Epilepsia (2014)

Bottom Line: No differences in baseline HAD or SF-36 values were found between these groups.HAD anxiety scores improved significantly in only the seizure-free patients.Nonetheless, only about half of the seizure-free patients achieved important HRQOL improvements, suggesting that seizure freedom does not in and of itself guarantee improved patient well-being.
