5 aminolevulinic acid fluorescence guided resection and intraoperative monitoring

5 aminolevulinic acid fluorescence guided resection and intraoperative monitoring with intraoperative cortical stimulation have the advantages of both methods and, thus, provide additional safety for the neurosurgeon during resections of primary malignant brain tumors in eloquent areas. Nonetheless, more cases and additional studies are necessary to further prove the advantages of this multimodal strategy 1).
