The current article addressed reintervention strategies for patients with glioblastoma. The authors demonstrated that it is possible to select patients with glioblastoma who are good candidates for an aggressive reintervention strategy at the time of first disease recurrence. They also showed that these patients improved their overall survival without compromising their quality of life.
