Tentorial meningiomas: surgical experience with 61 cases and long-term results.
In meningiomas with both supra- and subtentorial growth, a supratentorial bone flap was combined with a suboccipital craniectomy using a retromastoid incision, and the mortality rate was 9.8%. Expand
Surgical treatment of petroclival meningiomas: experience with 16 cases.
The 16 petroclival meningiomas operated on from 1984-1990 were all surgically treated using the combined transmastoid temporosuboccipital approach that offers a number of possible variants: retrosigmoidal, with or without recision of the sinus; presigmoidal retro-, or translabyrinthine. Expand
