Post-operative MRI finally showed complete removal of the tumor. Also [INAUDIBLE] more remnant in the left-lateral ventricle was completely removed. It is a very well seeing in these upper [? volumetric ?] cuts. And the complete removal of the tumor is confirmed by the coronal section, where the left-lateral ventricle appears finally free of tumor, and also, the post-operative sagittal MRI.
The clinical evolution showed complete removing all the tumor on the MRI. The patient was referred to the neuro-oncology unit, where he started the chemotherapy. Unfortunately, despite the heavy chemotherapy protocol, the tumor progressed, and the patient eventually died 12 months after the first surgery performed in our department.
