    PLoS ONE 7:e51450. 2012
    ..Surgical management of suspected LGG remains controversial. A key factor when deciding a surgical strategy is often the tumors' perceived relationship to eloquent brain regions..

    Asgeir S Jakola
    DepartmentofNeurosurgery, St Olavs University Hospital, Trondheim, Norway
    JAMA 308:1881-8. 2012
    ..There are no controlled studies on surgical treatment of diffuse low-grade gliomas (LGGs), and management is controversial...
  3. ncbi Patient selection and clinical outcomes in patients operated for brain metastases--is specialty of the referring physicians a prognostic factor?

    Department of Neurosurgery, St Olavs University Hospital, Trondheim, Norway
    Br J Neurosurg 26:679-83. 2012

  5. ncbi Postoperative deterioration in health related quality of life as predictor for survival in patients with glioblastoma: a prospective study
    Asgeir S Jakola
    Department of Neurosurgery, St Olavs University Hospital, Trondheim, Norway
    PLoS ONE 6:e28592. 2011
    ..Studies indicate that acquired deficits negatively affect patients' self-reported health related quality of life (HRQOL) and survival, but the impact of HRQOL deterioration after surgery on survival has not been explored...
