Feasibility of awake craniotomy for brain tumours in children
Awake craniotomy (AC) is routinely performed in adult patients for tumours near eloquent areas of the brain. It improves outcomes and reduces complications. However, its use is limited in children. However, several authors have reported good results of AC in a highly selective group of relatively older children. Fundamental to the success of AC is a co-operative child and thorough preoperative preparation with a truly multidisciplinary approach.
