Surgeries:

Craniotomy for glioblastoma

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common type of intrinsic brain tumour.  Surgery, whilst not curative, is the first line of treatment and can improve symptoms and survival provided a sufficient amount of tumour can be safely removed. Hence the rationale of maximally safe resection surgery.

Preparation for effective surgery involves careful assessment of the patients neurological status, assessment of the risks of surgery and an understanding of the patients and families expectations and wishes in the treatment of this condition. Surgery may not always be the best treatment or have a high risk of neurological complications.
