Post-traumatic stress disorder predicts survival in low-grade glioma

Takeaway

  • People with low-grade glioma (LGG) had lower rates of 5-year survival if they suffered from PTSD at 3 months after surgery.

Why this matters

  • Analyzing the prognostic value of mental disorders in LGG may lead to psychological treatments and supportive action for people with LGGs that are diagnosed with
    post-operative PTSD.
