BACKGROUND Patients with small (<3 cm) intracranial meningiomas can be either observed or treated. Treatment can be either radiosurgery or microsurgery if and when tumor progression occurs. We compared local tumor growth control and recurrence-free survival (RFS) of microsurgical resection and radiosurgery in small intracranial meningiomas and identified predictors of unfavorable outcome. METHODS A retrospective review (2005-2016) was performed of 90 consecutive patients with intracranial… CONTINUE READING
