Abstract

Awake-craniotomy (AC) allows maximum tumour resection while reducing the risk of permanent postoperative neurological deficits without compromising the outcomes of the treatment. AC is a potentially stressful procedure for the patients, which may lead to long-term effects on patients' psychology, and may lead to post-traumatic stress. However, there is a scarcity of data suggesting actual association of any neuropsychiatric conditions after AC. Therefore, we sought to review the neuropsychiatric conditions post awake craniotomy.
