Laser Thermocoagulation (LITT)
Within this group also fall the cases of radiation necrosis with which our center has had significant treatment success. Increasingly, however, as the technology advances, LITT has expanded its use into the area of epilepsy, particularly in patients with mesial temporal sclerosis or lesion-based seizures, the area of neurovascular such as for cavernous malformations and for benign tumors such as meningiomas. To date over a hundred cases have been treated with LITT at this facility.
