BACKGROUND To review our experience with morphological developments during the long-term follow-up of patients treated by Gamma Knife radiosurgery for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. METHOD Between 1995 and 1999, we treated 14 patients with marginal doses of 24 Gy (n = 6) and 18-20 Gy (n = 8). Nine of these were operated on for insufficient seizure(More)
BACKGROUND Radiosurgery is the main alternative to microsurgical resection for benign meningiomas. OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term efficacy and safety of radiosurgery for meningiomas with respect to tumor growth and prevention of associated neurological deterioration. Medium- to long-term outcomes have been widely reported, but no large multicenter(More)
PURPOSE We sought to determine the neuropsychological outcome after stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy performed for intractable mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. METHODS The article describes the cases of 31 patients who were evaluated using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised and the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised prior to, and(More)
BACKGROUND This paper presents our experience of stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy performed for intractable mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. METHODS The article describes the cases of 61 patients who were treated during the period from 2004 to 2010. Mean postoperative follow-up was 5.3 years. Neuropsychological results were obtained for a(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate the long-term seizure outcome and complications after stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy (SAHE) performed for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). METHODS The article describes the cases of 61 patients who were treated at our institution during the period 2004-2010. Mean post-operative(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to summarize our experience with neuropsychological changes after radiosurgical treatment for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and subsequent surgery due to insufficient seizure control. METHODS Between November 1995 and May 1999, 14 patients underwent radiosurgical entorhinoamygdalohippocampectomy with a marginal dose of(More)
The goal of pituitary adenoma radiosurgery is to halt tumor growth, normalize hormonal hypersecretion if present, maintain normal pituitary function, and preserve important structures around the sella. The radiation dose necessary to stop tumor growth is lower than the dose necessary to achieve normalization of hormonal hypersecretion. The minimum distance(More)
