More than 30% of patients with symptomatic epilepsy are resistant to drug therapy and therefore surgical treatment is the method of choice for such patients. Search and localization of the epileptogenic zone and all parts of the neural networks involved in stereotypic seizures are the most important objectives of pre-surgical evaluation and the prerequisite for the successful surgery. In the last decade, stereotactic implantation of multiple intracerebral multi-contact electrodes (SEEG) has been increasingly used for this purpose. The article includes a brief history of SEEG and a description of the major techniques for stereotactic implantation of electrodes. Information on accuracy (errors and deviations from planned target) and on complications are summarized. The data on the clinical value of the method and how these data affected the results of subsequent treatment are highlighted. The method of thermocoagulation and its results are briefly considered.
