Ensuring a stable position of intracranial electrode grids with good proximity to the cortical surface can be a technical challenge in patients with complex anomalous cerebral anatomy. This report illustrates the use of fibrin sealant to secure subdural electrodes to concave cortical surfaces during intracranial electroencephalographic monitoring for localization-related medically intractable epilepsy in a patient with a large arachnoid cyst.

Abbreviation used in this paper:

EEG = electroencephalography.
