OBJECT This study proposes a topographical classification of spheno-orbital meningiomas. Its aim was to define whether the different intraorbital localizations require different surgical approaches and have different recurrence rates and outcomes. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty patients with spheno-orbital meningiomas operated upon between 1983 and 2003 were reviewed. Four types were identified according to the extent of intraorbital tumor invasion: I: lateral or superolateral (15 cases); II… CONTINUE READING
