POLO-TORRES, C.; ALVIS-MIRANDA, H.R.; VILLA-DELGADO, R.  and  MOSCOTE-SALAZAR, L.R.. Perioperative management of intracranial tumours: the neurosurgeon´s role. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2013, vol.36, n.2, pp.295-308. ISSN 1137-6627.

The perioperative management of patients with brain tumours is a challenge for the neurosurgeon and the entire surgical team. The treating physician should consider factors such as the type of tumour, extent of disease, treatment received, the presence of comorbidities and prognosis of the disease itself. The successful execution of all aspects involved in perioperative management in patients with brain tumours will help prolong the life and improve the quality of life of patients.

Keywords : Brain tumors; Preoperative evaluation; Neurosurgery.
