Introduction: Approximately there is 50 million people with epilepsy in the world.
Currently, pharmacological management is the most therapeutic option. However,
about 30% of patients will develop drug-resistant epilepsy. Many factors are
thought to affect the treatment success. This study was conducted to determine
the relationship between electroencephalographic results and epilepsy treatment
success. Methods : This is cross sectional observational study. Inclusion criteria
was epileptic patients aged > 18 years and had received epilepsy treatment for at
least 1 year. The chi-square test is performed to see the relationship between
research variables. Results: EEG results has an effect on the success of therapy
(p 0.027). The most common type of epileptiform abnormality is sharp waves. The
most epileptiform amplitude and location were 80 microvolts and in the temporal
lobe. Conclusion: There is a significant relationship between EEG abnormalities
and the epilepsy treatment success.
