Fourty-two patients with petroclival meningioma were operated upon by the middle fossa transpetrosal-transtentorial approaches since 1977. Half of those showed tumour extension into the middle fossa and one-third in the cavernous sinus. Seventeen (40%) had a large tumour of 40 mm in diameter or larger, and 8 of those had a broad attachment from the clivus to petrous pyramid of the temporal bone. The site of pyramid resection was selected from three types, depending on the tumour location and… CONTINUE READING
