Brown and colleagues1 reported the results of a systematic review of the literature aimed in determining whether greater extent of resection (EOR) is associated with improved 1- and 2-year overall survival and 6-month and 1-year progression-free survival in patients affected by glioblastoma multiforme. The analysis revealed 37 studies suitable for inclusion. The authors found that gross total resection (GTR) for glioblastoma multiforme reduces 1- and 2-year mortality, thus supporting GTR over subtotal resection and biopsy.
