Neurosurgery Develops Position Statements for LITT

In September, the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Tumors and the American Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery produced two position statements regarding LITT for brain tumors, radiation necrosis and epilepsy. The documents provide an analysis of current clinical literature for the indications of LITT. The neurosurgical societies will use these statements in their advocacy efforts seeking appropriate coverage and reimbursement for this procedure in appropriately selected patients.
