Modern glioma surgery has evolved around the central tenet of safely maximizing resection. Recent surgical adjuncts have focused on increasing the maximum extent of resection while minimizing risk to functional brain. Technologies such as cortical and subcortical stimulation mapping, intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging, functional neuronavigation, navigable intraoperative ultrasound, neuroendoscopy, and fluorescence-guided resection have been developed to augment the identification of… CONTINUE READING
