BACKGROUND The prognosis for patients with atypical and malignant meningioma is guarded; whether the extent of resection is associated with survival-based outcomes in this population remains poorly defined. This study investigated the association between gross total resection (GTR) and all-cause mortality in patients with atypical and malignant meningioma. METHODS The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program was used to identify 575 and 64 patients betweens the ages of 18 and 70… CONTINUE READING
