Long-term antiseizure medication use in patients after meningioma resection: identifying predictors for successful weaning and failures

ConclusionsPreoperative seizures, modified STAMPE2 score of 3 –5, non-skull base tumor location, intratumoral calcifications, and Ki67 >  7% were significant risk factors for inability to achieve seizure freedom without ASMs. In addition, the modified STAMPE2 score successfully predicted increased seizure risk following meningioma resection for patients with a score of 3 or higher.
