Prognosis

  • Measures such as neck compression (tourniquet) and volume loading can be helpful in preventing VAE. PEEP increases the risk of VAE.[openanesthesia.org]
  • This happens because the tumour prevents that part of the brain from working normally. In the frontal lobe – changes in personality or behaviour, uncoordinated walking or weakness on one side of the body.[express.co.uk]
  • When symptoms do occur, it is because the brain tumour is either putting pressure on the brain or preventing an area of the brain from functioning properly.[your.md]
  • Medical management Anticonvulsants are sometimes prescribed to prevent seizures. Steroids may be necessary to decrease the amount of swelling. Chemotherapy may be offered by your oncologist.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu]
