Brain Tumor Surgery – Types & Recovery

September 24, 2018

RECOVERY

Brain tumor surgery is performed to remove the tumor from the brain. In other words, it’s an operation done to reduce the pressure inside the brain. In case, if you are diagnosed with a brain tumor the primary treatment available to you is the brain tumor surgery. It is performed to remove the tumor, either wholly or as much it is possible. Usually, surgery is an initial step taken to treat the beginning stages and other malignant tumors. It is the widely approached treatment by all, where the tumor can be removed easily without any risk of neurological damage.

Types of Brain Tumor Surgery

Mentioned below are the common types of brain tumor surgery done till date.

1. Biopsy: A surgery performed to remove a sample of tumor tissue.

2. Craniotomy: An operation carried out to remove a portion of the skull. By doing so, it allows the neurosurgeon to find and delete the tumor as much as possible. The removed part is replaced after the surgery.

3. Craniectomy: It is similar to craniotomy. The only difference in this operation is that the portion of skull removed is not replaced.

4. Debulking: Surgery is done to reduce the size of the tumor.

5. Partial Removal: An operation carried out to remove only a part of the tumor (due to the risk of a neurological disorder)

6. Complete Removal: Surgery is done to remove the entire tumor.

7. Shunt: The insertions of drainage systems designed allows to move excess fluid from the brain to another part of the body.

8. Ommaya reservoir: A tiny container inserted under the scalp and is connected to a tube. The container is used to:

a) Give chemotherapy treatment to the brain and the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) surrounding it.

b) Remove CSF to detect the presence of healthy cells.

c) Remove cystic fluid without the urge for surgery.

9. Skull Based Surgery: It belongs to the area of a tumor as well as the specialized technique used in the removal of tumors in this field.

10. Transsphenoidal Surgery: A surgery performed to operate on pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas.

11. Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy: It is a minimally invasive method of ablating tissues with heat. It is an efficient and safest technique used till date. It is also considered as a minimally invasive option for new or recurrent primary and metastatic tumors anywhere in the brain.

Recovery Time for Brain Tumor Surgery

Recovery time depends on:

  1. The entire operation done.
  2. The part of brain where the tumor is located.
  3. The areas of the brain affected by surgery.
  4. Patient’s age and overall health.

    So this was the first TransAsia plane crash and then another one.TransAsia flight 222 has crashed on final approach to the airport.But they weren't aligned with the runway.It crashed into the forest and into a nearby village.This crash was caused by the weather and the visibility.See,there we're people telling the ATC (Air Traffic Controller) the weather and the visibility.8 minutes before the crash they sead the vis. was 1600 then the weather got thicker and it jumped to 800 then 500 and boom crash.The pilots couldn't see the runway due to them being at 200ft (which is below the minimum).The pilots couldn't see the runway and could recover by going around if they couldn't see.To me it's pilot error.Both of these flights happend in 7 months.Out of the 58 people and crew 10 survived.

    100% pilot error, they turned off the engine.

  • Fierce DEVIL September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    The pilots ***** crashed the plane and killed many people. My uncle died on that flight!

  • Matal September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    All those people praising the pilot, it was pilot error that caused the crash. One engine flamed out and the pilot pulled back thrust on the single remaining engine causing the plane to bank left. Big mistake.

  • Rock Afelo September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    in era of jet, why still ride double fan engine ?

  • Isaac Rodriguez September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    Guys the plane had no engine this was an old year

  • Crooked Halo September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    As a multi rated pilot with low time in twins, I can sympathize with shutting down the wrong engine on or just after departure. Identify, verify, feather, plus several other critical procedures all must be done quickly and accurately while at a low altitude with a dirty plane. An engine failure in a twin on approach or departure is an extremely challenging and stressful situation.

  • Shawn N September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    When Potter told me to throw myself off a plane, I remember telling him his cult already decided not to kill me themselves, and that he was giving me instructions against his cult's intentions for me.

    Lose an engine in a twin… The other takes you to the scene of the crash Pilot proverb.

    Of course the camera is recording at 5 fps so that we can't see shit.

  • freedum freedum September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    no fire? no aviation fuel, just taken off? either this is a crappy reporter or trying to hide something

  • Paul the 2 marek Sørensen September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    Who the hell let Denzel Washington fly the plane? (From the movie flight )

  • Chris Wakefield September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    It didn't ditch, It crashed into the river. A ditching is a controlled landing in a body pf water and controlled isn't a word this doomed plane can be accused of. I'm not being pedantic here I'm just saying in an effort to educate. Harrowing!

  • tr33c September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    Not many people can say they survived getting hit by a plane in a car

  • 123静水丨流深 September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

  • 3drs1 September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    empty road and the yellow car got hit how unlucky

  • Brad Spelling September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    "Is this bridge safe?"

    -Believe me, the odds that something is gonna go wrong is not higher that the risk that a cab will be hit by a commercial plane

  • sangjeong kimcho September 24, 2018 at 1:04 pm
