The aim of this study was to document any impairment of neurocognitive functions following anterior cingulotomy. Between September 2002 and April 2004, 10 patients underwent stereotactic bilateral anterior cingulotomy for intractable cancer pain. A neuropsychological assessment of each patient was performed… CONTINUE READING
