Paper Abstract

Up to the present 5 patients with cerebral gliomas (WHO II-III) were treated by stereotactic, laser-induced, interstitial thermal therapy (SLIITT). Parameters used in SLIITT were 3 watts as continuous wave over 5-10 minutes in single or multiple foci depending on the size of the tumor.
