Gamma knife surgery for skull base meningiomas.

Gamma knife surgery for skull base meningiomas. Skull base meningiomas are challenging tumors owing in part to their close proximity to important neurovascular structures. Complete microsurgical resection can be associated with significant morbidity, and recurrence rates are not inconsequential. In this study, the authors evaluate the outcomes of skull base meningiomas treated with Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) both as an adjunct to microsurgery and as a primary treatment modality. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of neurosurgery Pubmed
