Clinical challenges in neurosurgery

Maximum brain tumor resection

Maximum brain tumor resection

In glioblastoma surgery, the extent of resection (EOR) is associated with overall survival.1  The challenge for neurosurgeons is to remove additional tumor tissue without harming eloquent areas.2

Intramedullary Spinal Cord Tumors

Intramedullary Spinal Cord Tumors

The surgical resection of intramedullary tumors aims at maximizing the extent of tumor resection while minimizing damage to the spinal cord parenchyma to preserve neurological function.3
