In a series of 40 patients undergoing an awake craniotomy for the removal of a glioma of the dominant hemisphere temporal lobe, cortical stimulation mapping was used to localize essential language sites. These sites were localized to distinct temporal lobe sectors and compared with 83 patients without tumors who had undergone language mapping for the treatment of intractable epilepsy. In patients with and without temporal lobe gliomas, the superior temporal gyrus contained significantly more… CONTINUE READING
