BACKGROUND The optimal management of subtotally resected or recurrent malignant meningiomas remains controversial. We evaluated the efficacy of linear accelerator (LINAC) radiosurgery for atypical and anaplastic meningiomas after incomplete resection or treatment of recurrences. METHODS Between August 1990 and December 2003, 16 patients with 28(More)
This paper reports on stereotactic biopsy combined with stereotactic (125)iodine brachytherapy (SBT) for locally recurrent, previously irradiated cerebral metastases, focusing on feasibility, complications, cerebral disease control, and survival. All patients with suspected locally recurrent metastases detected by MRI were selected for this combined(More)
OBJECTIVE To create probabilistic stimulation maps (PSMs) of deep brain stimulation (DBS) effects on tremor suppression and stimulation-induced side-effects in patients with essential tremor (ET). METHOD Monopolar reviews from 16 ET-patients which consisted of over 600 stimulation settings were used to create PSMs. A spherical model of the volume of(More)
BACKGROUND We present the long-term results of a consecutive series of patients with meningiomas treated by LINAC-radiosurgery using the micro-multi-leaf collimator technique (μMLC). METHODS Between May 2001 and July 2009, 78 patients (m: f = 024:54; median age, 56.8 years; range, 20.1-81 years) with 87 intracranial meningiomas (78 WHO I, seven WHO II,(More)
We evaluated the efficacy of interstitial brachytherapy (IBT) using (125)Iodine ((125)I) seeds for treatment of papillary tumors of the pineal region. Between September 2003 and September 2010, four patients (M/F = 2/2; median age, 57.3 years; range 29.2-69.1 years) with papillary tumors of the pineal region underwent IBT using (125)I seeds. Before(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the long-term outcome in patients harboring intracranial ependymomas treated with interstitial brachytherapy (IBT). METHODS Twenty-one patients (M/F = 9/12; median age: 29 years; range: 8-70 years), diagnosed with intracranial ependymoma (1 WHO I, 11 WHO II, 9 WHO III) were treated with IBT using stereotactically implanted(More)
