Electrophysiological Mapping and Monitoring during an Awake Craniotomy for Low-Grade Glioma: Case Report
© 2019, © 2019 ASET–The Neurodiagnostic Society. Awake craniotomy is advocated for the resection of supratentorial low-grade gliomas (LGG). The combination of neurophysiological electrical mapping techniques and performing the craniotomy awake has demonstrated increased total and supratotal resection of LGG, as well as increased overall survival rates. We present an illustrative case where the patient’s gross motor function deteriorated during the resection of a LGG and mapping techniques using the phase reversal technique and Taniguchi direct cortical stimulation technique while the patient was awake proved to be valuable in determining continuity of the corticospinal tracts.
