Al's Comment:

 This interesting study looked at what would happen if you remove small parts of the skull using burr holes to allow the tumor treating fields better access to the tumor.   There was no control group to compare but they reported pretty good results with overall survival of 15 months (after start of trial - which is for recurrent glioblastoma).  I love these studies that look at ways to make current treatments better. Now they have to build upon these results and try other combinations.
