Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


To achieve optimal patient outcomes in brain tumor surgery, it is critical to know how to identify, manage and prevent common complications. From specific to broad, complications can be categorized as local, regional, or systemic. Local complications depend on tumor location and are presented in relation to the relevant anatomy, with a review of the utility of contemporary surgical technologies to facilitate tumor resection and minimize complications. Regional or CNS specific in addition to general or systemic complications are also discussed with a focus on prevention and management, injecting the personal advice of the second author with more than 35 years of experience in brain tumor surgery.
