Example text

Since Martin Weiss52 first described the extended transsphenoidal approach, there has been a steady growth of interest in using the transnasal approach to remove an ever-expanding number of tumor types in the parasellar area and anterior skull base. The advantages of the endonasal endoscopic and transcranial microscopic approaches have been well discussed here by Cappabianca and DeMonte and their colleagues. I will briefly summarize my analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of these approaches before offering my opinion.

Parasagittal and falx meningiomas invading the SSS are common, and frequently present with neurologic symptomatology. Most of these tumors grow at follow-up; therefore, treatment is indicated. 19 2. The general consensus for managing tumors in the anterior third is surgery regardless of sinus invasion. Radiosurgery is also an option for patients with small meningiomas. 3. Conservative resection is associated with a high rate of regrowth. The increased morbidity rates with each repeat surgery speak against this treatment option.

For the 125 patients who had undergone surgery before gamma knife treatment, the 5-year control rate was only 60%. The authors reported that most cases of radiosurgery failure were due to remote tumor growth, as a precise definition of meningioma borders can be complicated in patients who have undergone previous surgery for SSS-invading meningiomas. In the 203 cases reported by Kondziolka and colleagues, the median marginal dose was 15 Gy. Sixteen percent of the patients developed symptomatic edema after radiosurgery.
