There is a need for better predictors for short survival in patients with brain metastases undergoing open surgery. The graded prognostic assessment (GPA) has recently been developed to predict survival in patients with brain metastases. We explored the prognostic capabilities of GPA in a consecutive neurosurgical population of brain metastases. Secondarily, we evaluated if GPA scores can provide information on safety of the operation and postoperative functional outcome. We retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
