Resection of intracranial lesions is less invasive if tubular retractors are used

Takeaway

  • Tubular retractors enable safe and effective minimally-invasive resection of intracranial lesions.

Why this matters

    This is the largest multi-surgeon, multi-institutional series to assess transcortical-transtubular methods for intracranial lesion resections. The findings suggest that tubular retractors offer an alternative to traditional retractors, providing an effective tool with a low complication profile.
