The results of a second operation for tumor removal in 24 adult patients with supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme or anaplastic astrocytoma were analyzed.

Only three of these patients maintained a Karnofsky rating (KR) of at least 60 for 6 months or longer after reoperation. Preoperative neurological status (KR) is the most significant determinant of survival after… Expand
