Surgical resection is the core of the comprehensive treatment of glioma. However, with infiltrative growth features, glioma often invades the surrounding area, making surgical resection more difficult. This review introduces relevant topics presented at the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societie Foundation Asian Congress of Neurological Surgeons (ACNS) Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery Web Seminar in 2022. First, we review assistive surgical techniques' characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages. Second, we summarize some state-of-the-art surgical views in glioma resection. Advanced modalities and surgical theories in glioma resection make better “maximum safe resection” achievable.
