Long-term EEG monitoring in the di agnosis and management of epilepsy Long-term Monitoring (LTM) is useful and ma ndatory in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy in epilepsy surgery centers and Intensive care units (ICU). We aimed to investigate their prevalence, electrographic characteristics, and clinical significance. Methods: We identified adult patients with B (I)RDs who received long-term EEG recordings either in the epilepsy monitoring unit or in the ambulatory setting.
