Objective: To determine the clinical effect of microsurgical therapy in treating brain tumor.
Methods: A total of 72 patients with brain tumor who were admitted from May 2015 to June 2017 were employed as subjects and divided into two groups through odd-even method. In the control group (n=36), traditional craniotomy was adopted during treatment, while microsurgical therapy was used in the experimental group (n=36). Upon completion of treatments, the recoveries, life quality scores, SAS scores, SDS scores, and the degrees of satisfaction of the two groups were compared.
Results: The experimental group showed more significant results in all parameters tested (all P<0.05) compared with the control group (P<0.05).
Conclusions: Microsurgical therapy, if properly applied to brain tumor patients, can remarkably improve the patients’ recovery, life quality, SAS, SDS, and degree of satisfaction toward surgery. Such improvement optimizes the surgical effect, enhances prognosis, and enriches patients’ independence in life.Author(s): Miao Sun, Yunzhi Ma, Xiaoming Shen, Fuchun Si
