Answer

A study of the ILAE criteria in pediatric epilepsy patients found that the probability of achieving seizure freedom was 65%, 29%, 27% and 21%, respectively, with trials of successive therapeutic regimens. [53, 54] Patients with medically refractory epilepsy should be referred to an epileptologist.
