    Abstract

    The outcome of brain and spinal surgery has been assessed in 141 patients who were over the age of 65 at the time of operation. Patients tolerated investigation and surgery remarkably well and good results were obtained for benign lesions. Survival times and the contribution of surgery to reducing disability in malignant disease were disappointing.
