Split Brain Surgery
brain surgery may be considered as one of the highly refined surgical techniques
that are performed by skilled surgeons in an established hospital and unlike an
ordinary surgery, the split brain surgery often involves surgical interference
with the nerve fibers that are crossing the region of brain called corpus callosum.
This area is considered to be one of the highly sensitive areas in the brain structures
because of the crossing of the neurons to both right and left sides at this site.
removal of connections- mostly the neurons crossing the pathway at corpus callosum,
the neurosurgeons are able to reduce the passage of impulses that are associated
with occurrence of seizures.
Seizures and split brain surgery
The split brain surgery is not generally carried out in patients with some outgrowths like tumors in brain but with absence of history of occurrence of seizures. Patient with history of recurrent seizures are perhaps specifically suggested to undergo many laboratory examinations including scanning procedures, radiographic examinations etc. Complete medical history is being obtained from the concerned patient about the occurrence of seizures.
brain surgery is generally carried out in patients with recurrent and generalized
seizures and these patients earlier might have been suggested various therapeutic
regimen earlier and despite all these treatments, the clinical condition could
not be cured in them.
