Preusser, M; de Ribaupierre, S; Wöhrer, A; Erridge, S C; Hegi, M; Weller, M; Stupp, R (2011). Current concepts and management of glioblastoma. Annals of Neurology, 70(1):9-21.

Abstract

Glioblastoma is the most common malignant primary brain tumor in adults. Its often rapid clinical course, with many medical and psychosocial challenges, requires a multidisciplinary management. Modern multimodality treatment and care improve patients' life expectancy and quality of life. This review covers major aspects of care of glioblastoma patients with a focus on the management of common symptoms and complications. We aim to provide a guide for clinicians confronted with glioblastoma patients in their everyday practice.
