Table 8 Monte Carlo simulation (run 10,000 times) comparing LITT versus OTHER PROCEDURE on the outcomes of costs and overall survival

From: The value of using a brain laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) system in patients presenting with high grade gliomas where maximal safe resection may not be feasible

Treatment Cost Overall survival in months
Brain LITT $89,785 ± $15,885 19.12 ± 3.51
OTHER TREATMENTS $82,042 ± $22,070 15.95 ± 4.04
