The use of motor mapping to aid resection of eloquent gliomas.


Journal Article (Review)

Surgery remains one of the oldest and still most important forms of treatment for patients with glioma. The advantages of surgical resection for glioma must be balanced with the potential of operative morbidity to surrounding eloquent brain. To that end, advances in functional brain mapping allow for safer operations with more aggressive surgical resections. A brief history of motor mapping as well as its present day use in aiding resection of eloquent gliomas is discussed.
