Long-term surgical outcome and biological prognostic factors in patients with skull base meningiomas.

Long-term surgical outcome and biological prognostic factors in patients with skull base... Although gross-total resection (GTR) is a preferable treatment for skull base meningiomas, subtotal resection (STR) with or without radiation therapy can be considered as an alternative treatment for patients at considerable surgical risk.

Long-term surgical outcome and biological prognostic factors in patients with skull base meningiomas.


Abstract

Although gross-total resection (GTR) is a preferable treatment for skull base meningiomas, subtotal resection (STR) with or without radiation therapy can be considered as an alternative treatment for patients at considerable surgical risk. The long-term prognosis of such patients might be related to the biological activity of the tumor. This study examined predictors of progression-free survival (PFS) and sought to determine the optimal treatment strategies, focusing on the pathobiological findings of skull base meningiomas.
