Abstract

Awake craniotomy (AC) is becoming increasingly popular for brain tumour surgery. The procedure allows better preservation of eloquent cortex and helps achieve greater tumour resection. However, a potential problem with the procedure is intraoperative seizures (IOS) that may affect the mapping and monitoring of awake patients and may even lead to abandoning of the awake procedure.
