Objective: Study the method of operative for rolandic epilepsy.

Method: We collected subjects who underwent epilepsy surgeries consecutively in southern research institute against epilepsy with the epileptogenic zone located in rolandic areas from January 2008 to March 2015. We analysed the method of location, technology of resection and follow-up result. The eplieptogenic zone located by clinical symptoms, MR, PET, neuronavigation, stereotaxis, B ultrasonic, three dimensional positioning, video-EEG, ECoG, deep-EEG. Function areas located by embedded steel, awake surgery, electric cortical stimulation in operation. Technical of operation include resection of focus at bottom of sulus, half of gyrus resection, undermined resection of focus, hollowed-out work et al.

Result: We did operations of rolandic epilepsy, use the technologies include accurate structure location, exact functional location and fine resection operation, our operation effective in treatment of epilepsy and well favorable protect function of rolandic areas.

Conclusion: Accurate structure location, exact functional location, fine resection operation is effective surgical treatment method of rolandic epilepsy.
