Cortical plasticity catalyzed by prehabilitation enables extensive resection of brain tumors in eloquent areas.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The extent of resection is the most important prognostic factor following brain glioma surgery. However, eloquent areas within tumors limit the extent of resection and, thus, critically affect outcomes. The authors hypothesized that presurgical suppression of the eloquent areas within a tumor by continuous cortical electrical stimulation, coupled… (More)
