Surgical oncology for gliomas: the state of the art

Surgical oncology for gliomas: the state of the art

Surgical oncology for gliomas: the state of the art, Published online: 21 November 2017; doi:10.1038/nrclinonc.2017.171

Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment for patients with gliomas, independent of tumour grade, and maximal resection of the tumour is essential for long-term disease control. Herein, the authors discuss the current evidence on associations between the extent of glioma resection and clinical outcomes. They also describe the state-of-the-art surgical oncology approaches aimed at maximizing the extent of tumour resection while minimizing patient morbidity.
