Epilepsy surgery within the temporal lobe of the language dominant hemisphere bears the risk of postoperative verbal memory decline. As surgical procedures have become more tailored, the question has arisen, which type of resection within the temporal lobe is more favourable for memory outcome. Since the hippocampus (HC) is known to play an essential role for long-term memory, we examined whether HC sparing resections help to preserve verbal memory functions.
