Recent advanced methods that include neurophysiological brain mapping and monitoring techniques [1-4, 13], use of neuronavigation systems, and intraoperative magnetic resonance (MR) imaging [5, 6, 9, 11] enable total resection of gliomas in the frontoparietal opercular region inferolateral to the hand-digit sensorimotor area. Such procedures have been developed to prevent direct damage to the eloquent cortices and corticospinal tract, but potential damage to the blood supply to the corona radiata from therapeutic procedures and the resultant ischemic complications are little understood.
