OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and efficacy of preoperative embolization of central nervous system tumors with n-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) liquid adhesive. METHODS Over a 6-year period, 35 consecutive patients (12 women, 23 men; mean age, 42 yr; range, 6 mo-75 yr) with a central nervous system tumor underwent preoperative embolization with NBCA. Tumor type, location, endovascular and surgical treatment, percent of tumor embolization, estimated blood loss, and neurological deficits related… CONTINUE READING
