OBJECTIVE Stereotactic radiosurgery has become an important primary or adjuvant minimally invasive management strategy for patients with intracranial meningiomas with the goals of long-term tumor growth prevention and maintenance of patient neurological function. We evaluated clinical and imaging outcomes of meningiomas stratified by histological tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE Radiation-induced meningiomas of the brain are typically managed with surgical resection. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has become an important primary or adjuvant management for patients with intracranial meningiomas, but the value of this approach for radiation-induced tumors is unclear. METHODS This series consisted of 19 patients (mean(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Surgical resection of intradural pathology through an endonasal corridor creates defects that communicate the subarachnoid space with the sinonasal tract. Reconstruction of these defects with vascularized tissue is superior to any other method. The purpose of this study is to describe a novel vascularized pedicled flap from the middle(More)
OBJECTIVE Patients who have a schwannoma of the facial nerve (facial schwannoma, facial neuroma) can be managed with observation, surgical resection, stereotactic radiosurgery, or fractionated radiotherapy. Attempted complete resection is associated with facial weakness. The role of radiosurgery in these patients remains to be defined. METHODS We reviewed(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS We sought to investigate the anatomical relation of the intrasphenoid septations to the internal carotid artery (ICA). METHODS Twenty-seven preoperative high-resolution computed tomography angiographic (CTA) scans with 1 mm of separation acquisition were examined. In addition, an endoscopic endonasal approach and high-resolution(More)
OBJECTIVE The endoscopic endonasal transclival approach is a valid alternative for treatment of lesions in the clivus. The major limitation of this approach is a significant lateral extension of the tumor. We aim to identify a safe corridor through the occipital condyle to provide more lateral exposure of the foramen magnum. METHODS Sixteen parameters(More)
OBJECT Rathke cleft cysts (RCCs) are benign lesions that can be diagnosed as an incidental finding associated with headaches, pituitary dysfunction, or vision deterioration. Typically, they occur in a sellar or suprasellar location. The aim of this study was to review the clinical presentation and outcomes associated with endoscopic endonasal resection of(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerebral revascularization has been used in treating difficult skull base tumors when the preservation of the involved native arteries is deemed challenging, and the patients are at risk of developing vascular complications. We aimed to evaluate a recent series of patients who needed high flow cerebral bypasses as part of the surgical treatment(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding the course of the most medially located parasellar cranial nerve, the abducens, becomes critical when performing an expanded endonasal approach. OBJECTIVE We report an anatomoclinical study of the abducens nerve and describe relevant surgical nuances to avoid its injury. METHODS Ten anatomic specimens were dissected using(More)
OBJECT Meningiomas of the cerebral convexity are often surgically curable because both the mass and involved dura mater can be removed. Stereotactic radiosurgery has become an important primary or adjuvant treatment for patients with intracranial meningiomas. The authors evaluated clinical and imaging outcomes in patients with convexity meningiomas after(More)
