9. Results 1973-1977. 1% of our patients continue to have identical seizures, thus confirming the failure of our diagnostic and therapeutic approach. 1010 of patients died. We reported in detail in our 1974 study 6 deaths among 146 patients. Our only death among 74 new patients is a case of frontal epilepsy: one month after cortex excision the patient had a massive pulmonary embolism. The study of our 1973 to 1977 results (Fig. 6010). 4% mortality. 8%. 6%. 4010. Important decrease of seizures: 15%.

The second is related to the techniques of cortical excision, the extent of which is stereotactically defined by data gathered prior to craniotomy 21. "Global" Stereotactic Radiological Localization The patient, under general anaesthesia, is placed in a stereotactic frame first designed in 1949 11. Its successive modifications will not be described here. The rectangular frame together with the corresponding radiological equipment allows for bidirectional, orthogonal teleradiography giving the three coordinates of brain structures (X, Y on the lateral view, Y, Z on the frontal view).
