Summary of "Perioperative and postoperative quality of life in glioma patients - A longitudinal cohort study."

Few studies assess patient-reported quality of life (QoL) in glioma patients undergoing surgery, and even fewer provide longitudinal data. Accordingly, there is little knowledge about the changes of QoL over time in glioma patients. We sought to explore peri- and postoperative development of generic QoL during the first six months after primary glioma surgery.
