Title:
Safety and tolerability of navigated TMS for preoperative mapping in neurosurgical patients. 
Abstract:
Navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) is a non-invasive technique for pre-surgical motor and language mapping in patients with brain lesions. This study examines the safety and tolerability of nTMS in a large, multi-center cohort of neurosurgical patients.Functional mapping with monopulse and repetitive nTMS was performed in 733 patients.
