Introduction: Patients with symptomatic generalized epilepsy who are not candidates for resections may be considered for corpus callosotomy. Methods: The two patients who were followed in this series underwent resection of the corpus callosum utilizing the OmniGuide CO2 Laser System. Surgical Technique: The OmniGuide CO2 Laser Systemcan be used in place of the bipolar electrocautery in a corpus callosotomy to improve midline dissection, decrease the likelihood of entering the ventricle, and improve visualization in the dissection. Conclusion: The OmniGuide CO2 Laser System is a valuable option when performing a corpus callosotomy.
