Frontal Skull-Base Meningioma: Its Management and Outcome

  title={Frontal Skull-Base Meningioma: Its Management and Outcome},
  author={BK Baishya and Talukdar Ramen and Barman Paran},
Objective: To analyze the clinical manifestations, diagnostic evaluation and the functional outcome of surgery of anterior skull base meningioma. Material and method: It is a prospective hospital based study on 22 patients who were admitted and diagnosed to be a case of anterior skull base meningioma and have completed at least three months of follow-up after surgery. Result: Anterior skull base meningioma is commonly seen in the female population with a female to male ratio of 1.75:1. Maximum…

Clinical Outcome and Complication of Anterior Cranial Fossa Meningiomas in Tertiary Care Hospital of KPK

Transcranial approach for microsurgical resection of anterior cranial fossa meningiomas is an effective and feasible approach in terms of visual outcome and extent of resection.



Orbital meningioma, the Utrecht experience

Proptosis and, secondly, vision complaints are the most frequent symptoms in patients with either a primary or a secondary orbital meningioma, and their clinical course is extremely variable.

Olfactory groove meningiomas

A surgical procedure adapted to the size and the extension of the tumor combined with microsurgical techniques allows total meningioma removal with good neurological outcome.

Surgical management of tuberculum sellae meningiomas: involvement of the optic canal and visual outcome

In the majority of patients with tuberculum sellae meningiomas, total resection may be achieved through a pterional approach with minimal complications, and visual acuity worsened with increasing duration of preoperative symptoms and with increasing age.


From 1978 through 2002, tuberculum sellae meningiomas were removed microsurgically using three different surgical approaches, and the frontolateral approach provided the best results concerning visual outcome while representing the least invasive surgical approach.

Tuberculum and diaphragma sella meningioma – surgical technique and visual outcome in a series of 20 cases operated over a 2.5-year period

Early surgery with better pre-operation visual function and smaller tumour size were associated with a better outcome, and Tuberculum and diaphragma sella meningioma can be safely resected using the subfrontal approach with preservation and even improvement of visual function after surgery.

Tuberculum sellae meningioma: a report on management on the basis of a surgical experience with 70 patients.

The extent and duration of visual symptoms, encasement of the anterior cerebral artery complex, and size of the tumor were the more important factors that affected the surgery.

Recurrence of Olfactory Groove Meningiomas

The cranial base and paranasal sinuses are sites of predilection for recurrence of olfactory groove meningiomas, and extensive resection of all suspicious underlying bone is a complement to radical removal of these lesions.

Surgical management of medulla oblongata hemangioblastomas in one institution: an analysis of 62 cases.

This study suggests that safe and effective surgical management of medulla oblongata hemangioblastomas can be achieved for most patients, even without preoperative embolization.

Long-term follow-up of patients with meningiomas involving the cavernous sinus: recurrence, progression, and quality of life.

Surgery for meningiomas involving the cavernous sinus seems to provide excellent tumor control and seems to increase the duration of recurrence-free survival.

Interhemispheric approach for microsurgical removal of olfactory groove meningiomas.

Eighteen consecutive patients with olfactory groove meningiomas, with diameters ranging from 1.5 to 7 cm, underwent microsurgical tumour resection using a unilateral frontal interhemispheric approach, which has the advantages of sparing the frontal sinuses and providing excellent overview of the dissection of the anterior cerebral arteries and the optic system.
