When is an awake craniotomy recommended and why?

0

Awake craniotomies are recommended for surgeries in eloquent areas of the brain. This is usually recommended for tumors near the language cortex or very close to the motor cortex in which the approach will change based on the patients response. With awake, patient resection can be much safer as the surgery can be carried out while directly monitoring the patient’s response.
