Brain surgery during vigilance, as it is called a awakening cranial Hajj procedure, is one of the types of procedures that are carried out on the brain when you are vigilant and obscure. Brain surgery during vigilance is used to treat after brain cases (nervous system), including some brain tumors or epileptic seizures.

If the tumor you suffer or your brain area causes you episodes (concentration of epilepsy) located near the parts of the brain that control vision, movement or speech, you may need to wake up during surgery. Your surgeon may ask you questions and monitor your brain when you show reactions.

Your surgeon’s reactions help ensure that it treats the correct brain area that needs surgery. This procedure also limits the danger of damage to the functional areas of your brain that affects vision, movement or speech.

Why is this done?

If there is a tumor or part of the brain that causes episodes that need surgical removal, doctors should ensure that they do not damage the brain area that affects your language, your words and motor skills.

It is difficult to determine these areas completely before surgery. Brain surgery with vigilance allows the surgeon to know specifically any of the brain areas that control these functions and then can avoid them.


Some risk of brain surgery with vigilance includes the following:

  • Vision changes
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty speaking or learning
  • memory loss
  • Weak coordination and
  • balance
  • brain attack
  • Brain swelling or excessive
  • brain fluid
  • Meningitis
  • Spinal liquid
  • Poor muscles

If you undergo brain surgery during alertness to treat epilepsy, you should notice an improvement in your seizures after surgery in general. Some heal episodes, while others have lower episodes than it was before the surgery. Sometimes, some people have no change in the frequency of their seizures.

If you have undergone brain surgery during alertness to remove a tumor, the nerve surgeon should be able to remove most of the tumor in general. You may still need other treatments, such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy; To help destroy the remaining parts of the tumor.
