Prophylaxis or treatment of tumor-associated seizures is adaily concern in neurosurgical practice but is often guided by the surgeon's habits rather than evidence from clinical trials, which is lacking. The present study reviews the literature on the incidence, clinical aspects and treatment of epilepsy and epileptic seizures in patients undergoing surgery for meningioma. Based on the published data, we then performed a French nationwide survey of neurosurgeons' practices regarding perioperative management of meningioma-related epilepsy and epileptic seizures.
