Multicenter, retrospective analysis of 70 subjects with TSC following surgery for relief of epilepsy revealed significant associations between younger age at seizure onset, present/prior history of infantile spasms, interictal focality (bilateral versus unilateral), and absence of residual postoperative predominant tuber, and poorer postoperative outcome (p < 0.01). Ictal multifocality, mental retardation, and discordant EEG and MRI data showed a negative trend toward outcome, but were not significant.
