Potential treatment-related neurotoxicity and the indolent course of the disease mainly feed the controversy concerning the optimal timing of surgery and radiotherapy in meningioma patients. To quantify the additional negative effects of conventional radiotherapy compared to surgery alone on neurocognitive functioning and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with WHO grade I meningiomas. Neurocognitive functioning and HRQOL (SF36, EORTC-BCM20) were assessed in consecutive patients… CONTINUE READING
