PURPOSE Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) delivers a potent, highly focused dose of radiation to the tumor while sparing the surrounding normal tissues. The purpose of this study was to assess the outcome of patients with intracranial meningiomas treated with SRS. METHODS A total of 73 patients with 221 benign meningiomas treated between 1991 and 2005 with(More)
Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) with high energy electron beams is a treatment modality that has been included in multimodal programs in oncology to improve local tumor control. From August 1991 to December 1993, 17 patients with primary (8) or recurrent (9) high grade malignant gliomas, anaplastic astrocytoma (4), anaplastic oligodendroglioma (6)(More)
The cases of 82 patients with cavernous sinus meningioma (CSM) treated with Stereotactic Radio-surgery (SRS) at our institution from 1992 to 2005 were retrospectively reviewed. The mean follow up time was 8.38 years. Patients' age ranged between 16 and 78 years (mean 51). There were 35 patients who had been operated before, and two of them had been treated(More)
OBJECTIVE Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) in the brainstem carry a high risk of recurrent haemorrhage, mortality and morbidity. Treatment options are limited and mainly based on stereotactic radiosurgery. We studied the results of our series of brainstem AVM treated with linear accelerator (LINAC) and with a long-term follow-up. METHODS We(More)
A modification of the stereotactic radiosurgical procedure to permit treatment of lesions in the foramen magnum and upper cervical regions is described. The modification consists of placing the frontal pins of the stereotactic head ring in the zigoma bone, with no changes in the position of the occipital pins, so the final BRW head ring is oblique to the(More)
