Investigators examined intracranial seizure termination (ST) of 59 patients with mesial temporal (MT) or neocortical (NC) complex partial seizures (CPS). They found:
- 88% of patients with MT CPS had exclusively synchronous pattern of ST (38%) or mixed synchronous/asynchronous ST patterns (50%)
- 82% in the NC group had exclusively synchronous pattern of ST (52%) or mixed (30%)
- Patients with only synchronous ST had low variability in seizure duration
