BACKGROUND Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is one of the cerebrovascular diseases that bear a high risk of hemorrhage. The treatment modalities include microsurgical resection, endovascular embolization, stereotactic radiosurgery, or combinations that vary widely. Several large series have been reported, while data from Asian populations were few. The aim(More)
BACKGROUND Epilepsy is the most common symptom of cavernoma. Although microsurgery is the mainstay treatment for epileptogenic cavernoma, this procedure may cause severe complications for some lesions. This report aimed to study if linear accelerator (LINAC) radiosurgery was an alternative treatment modality for epileptogenic cavernoma. METHODS In this(More)
BACKGROUND The annual hemorrhage rate of intracranial cavernous malformation (CM) is reported to range from 0.23% to 1.1%. Because of the low hemorrhage rate, operating on a deep symptomatic lesion with or without hemorrhage is considered controversial. For the prevention of hemorrhage, radiosurgery is an alternative method, targeting smaller lesions and(More)
Radiosurgery has been proven to be an effective treatment for residual or recurrent pituitary adenomas after surgery. However, it causes severe complications when the optic apparatus is irradiated over the tolerance dose. In this study, we analyzed the feasibility of fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery to treat pituitary tumors close to the optic(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of linear accelerator (LINAC)-based radiosurgery in the treatment of acoustic neuromas. In this retrospective study, we enrolled 75 patients with non-neurofibromatosis type 2 acoustic neuromas who were followed-up for more than 5years. The 75 patients were divided into 3 groups: patients with a newly(More)
