Awake Craniotomy for Right Inferior Lobule Glioma

08 Feb, 2019 ,

Awake craniotomy is a method usually used for brain tumors near or within the language and/or sensorimotor areas. Preservation of these important neurological functions, however, may not be enough for a normal life. Rafael T. M. Leal, MD, and Jose A. Landeiro, MD, Ph.D. present a case of a 45-year-old woman with an inferior parietal lobule low-grade glioma who underwent an awake craniotomy with sensorimotor and spatial cognition mapping.
