Epilepsiechirurgie bei Kindern: Neuropsychologische Abklärung

  • C. Hoppe

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Die neuropsychologische Untersuchung ist auch bei Kindern obligater Bestandteil der prächirurgischen Epilepsiediagnostik. Sie dient der wissenschaftlich fundierten Erfassung eines kognitiv-mnestischen Leistungsprofils vor dem Hintergrund der kindlichen Entwicklung, der klinischen Einordnung kognitiv-mnestischer Defizite in das Gesamtbild der Erkrankung vor allem im Hinblick auf Lateralisation und Lokalisation der epileptogenen Hirnschädigung sowie der Einschätzung der funktionellen Relevanz des zu resezierenden Gewebes und damit des Risikos postoperativer kognitiv-mnestischer Leistungseinbußen. Der Beitrag erläutert die konzeptuellen Grundlagen und das schrittweise diagnostische Vorgehen bei der neuropsychologischen Abklärung von Kindern im Rahmen der präoperativen Epilepsiediagnostik.
