Abstract

In this cohort, the risk for premature death in patients undergoing TLE surgery decreased over time but remained above the standard population. Men had a slightly higher risk than women, as did right-sided resections in MTS, confirming this observation in the original cohort. Although lower, the risk of SUDEP remained. Without up-to-date information on seizure outcome, we were unable to directly relate this to mortality.
