The range of the age was 11 months to 15 years. 103 children were treated by surgery only and 10 received surgery and postoperative irradiation. Shunting was necessary in 22% patient with cerebellar astrocytoma. One-year survival for patients with cerebellar astrocytoma was(More)
Between 1980 and 1987, 30 children with infratentorial ependymomas were treated at the Department of Neurosurgery, Children Medical Centre. The age range was 1.5 years to 9 years. All children with infratentorial ependymomas were treated surgically. Shunting was necessary in 36% patients in this population. Conventional irradiation was given to five(More)
Fifty-two children were treated surgically in the years 1980-1987. Their mean age was 5.3 years, range 10 months-13 years. In 58% partial removal of the tumour was done, in 4% only biopsy was performed. Shunt treatment was necessary in 40% cases. The analysis showed that in the cases treated in the years 1980-1984 1-year survival was 75%, 3-year survival(More)

The diagnosis was based on the results of ultrasonography and CT. Eight patients had shunts implanted for(More)
Between 1980-1987 in the Neurosurgery Department we treated 113 patients with cerebellar astrocytoma, 52 children with medulloblastoma and 30 patients with ependymoma. Before operation shunting was used in 10 patients and after operation in 15 patients, generally shunting was necessary in 22% patients with cerebellar astrocytoma. In cases of medulloblastoma(More)
The effectiveness of combined treatment of posterior fossa tumours was analysed using the clinical material of a neurosurgery department. The material comprised 242 patients treated in the years 1980-1987 with 211 suboccipital craniotomies performed. In cases of cerebellar astrocytoma one-year survival rate was 9% and five year survival in 89% of cases. In(More)
In the years 1980-1987 the number of children aged from 11 months to 15 years treated for cerebellar astrocytoma was 113, the mean age was 5.4 years. Shunt insertion preceding the main surgical treatment was done in 10 cases (9%). After the operation shunt was necessary in 15 cases, that is 15% of cases not undergoing shunt insertion before the operation.(More)
