Objective: The role of repeat resection in the multimodal treatment of gliomas is unclear. Repeat surgery theoretically carries a higher risk of inducing neurological deficits, which might even out any advantage of cytoreduction. We sought to determine if the rate of perioperative infarction is higher[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
