Over the past two decades, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) has become an accepted and viable treatment modality for intractable epilepsy both in children and adults. Earlier studies have demonstrated short-term seizure outcomes, usually for up to 5 years; so far, none have reported an extended outcome in children. We aimed to assess long term seizure outcome in children with intractable epilepsy for more than 5 years.
