Study Reports Innovative Combination of Minimally Invasive Procedures Laser Interstitial Thermotherapy (LITT) & 'Mini' Craniotomy for Treating 'Inoperable' Brain Tumors

A new paper in the October issue of the journal Neurosurgical Focus finds the use of laser beneficial for the removal of large, "inoperable" glioblastoma (GBM) and other types of brain tumors. The authors describe how they treated larger, inoperable tumors safely with LITT when combined with a very small craniotomy which allowed them to suck out the cooked tumor to prevent swelling.
