Two of 4 patients who were re-evaluated by means of foramen-ovale electrodes in the course of presurgical monitoring suffered a brain-stem lesion. Only 1 of these 2 patients already had a temporal resection. None of 55 patients who underwent this procedure for the first time had such a complication. We conclude that this electrode technique is not indicated to evaluate patients a second time, even if no surgical resection has been performed between the 2 recording sessions.
