Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cohort 1. Patients with brain lesions in non-motor areas undergoing an awake craniotomy (AC)
5 patient minimum
Device: Hand-held dynamometer
Maximum Grip Strength will be measured using a hand-held dynamometer (K-FORCE Grip dynamometer®. Kinvent Biomequanique S.A.S, Montpellier, France) during the preoperative, intraoperative (Awake craniotomy) and postoperative period.

Experimental: Cohort 2. Patients with brain lesions within or proximal to motor areas undergoing an AC
5 patient minimum
Device: Hand-held dynamometer
Maximum Grip Strength will be measured using a hand-held dynamometer (K-FORCE Grip dynamometer®. Kinvent Biomequanique S.A.S, Montpellier, France) during the preoperative, intraoperative (Awake craniotomy) and postoperative period.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intraoperative maximum grip strength (KgF) baseline [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Maximum grip strength (KgF) will be measured using hand-held dynamometry every 2 minutes from the time the patient awakes until the end of surgery. Intraoperative maximum grip strength baseline is defined as the mean of 3 consecutive measures with <10% variability.

  2. Intraoperative maximum grip strength (KgF) variability [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    To validate the use of hand-held dynamometry as an adequate tool to monitor intraoperative motor function during awake craniotomies (AC), maximum grip strength (KgF) will be measured every 2 minutes from the time the patient awakes to the end of surgery. The intra-individual variability will be defined as the percent difference between sets with 10% or greater defined as substantial variability.

  3. Maximum grip strength (KgF) variability from preoperative baseline [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    To validate the use of hand-held dynamometry as an adequate tool to monitor intraoperative motor function during AC, each patient will be baselined (mean of 6 consecutive measurements) during the preoperative neuropsychology evaluation. Variability from preoperative baseline will be calculated as a percentile [ (Preoperative Baseline/ Intraoperative Baseline)/ Preoperative Baseline) * 100]

  4. Operative Time (Minutes) [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Defined as the duration of the procedure from the initiation of skin incision to the completion of skin closure according to anesthesia records. Measured in minutes.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation Coefficient (ρ) between hand-held dynamometry and manual motor testing during AC [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Concordance between hand-held dynamometer and manual motor testing will be evaluated using Spearmans' correlation coefficient.

  2. Postoperative Maximum Grip Strength (KgF) [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Postoperative Maximum Grip strength (KgF) will be measured using hand-held dynamometer at day 1 and at 1 month follow-up.
