OBJECTIVE Petroclival meningiomas (PCMs) can cause devastating clinical symptoms due to mass effect on cranial nerves (CNs); thus, patients harboring these tumors need treatment. Many neurosurgeons advocate for microsurgery because removal of the tumor can provide relief or result in symptom disappearance. Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) is often an alternative for surgery because it can cause tumor shrinkage with improvement of symptoms. This study evaluates qualitative volumetric changes of PCM after primary GKRS and its impact on clinical symptoms...

The surgical management of petroclival meningiomas remains a formidable challenge. These tumors are deep in the base of the skull and arise medial to the fifth cranial nerve. In this operative video, the author demonstrates the extended middle fossa approach with anterior petrosectomy to resect an upper petroclival meningioma extending into Meckel's cave with brainstem compression. This approach is very useful for accessing deep tumors located above and below the tentorium, and between the fifth and seventh cranial nerves...

Surgical access to the petroclival region poses a challenge to neurosurgeons. A wide range of approaches has been demonstrated in the past. In this video, the authors present a 69-year-old male patient who presented with 3-month history of worsening left-sided numbness. The tumor was totally removed in 2 sessions via anterior transpetrosal and retrosigmoid approaches, respectively. The authors demonstrate 2 separate skull base approaches to resect a petroclival meningioma and discuss pitfalls and problems of management for challenging meningiomas...

Meningiomas represent the most common primary intracranial neoplasm treated by neurosurgeons. Although multimodal treatment of meningiomas includes surgery, radiation-based treatments, and occasionally medical therapy, surgery remains the mainstay of treatment for most symptomatic meningiomas. Because of the intricate relationship of the dura mater and arachnoid mater with the central nervous system and cranial nerves, meningiomas can arise anywhere along the skull base or convexities, and occasionally even within the ventricular system, thereby mandating a catalog of surgical approaches that neurosurgeons may employ to individualize treatment for patients...

OBJECTIVE In the present study the authors aimed to determine preferred locations of meningiomas by avoiding descriptive analysis and instead using voxel-based lesion mapping and 3D image-rendering techniques. METHODS Magnetic resonance images obtained in 248 treatment-naïve meningioma patients with 260 lesions were retrospectively and consecutively collected. All images were registered to a 1-mm isotropic, high-resolution, T1-weighted brain atlas provided by the Montreal Neurological Institute (the MNI152), and a lesion frequency map was created, followed by 3D volume rendering to visualize the preferred locations of meningiomas in 3D...

The results of preoperative embolization for skull base meningiomas were retrospectively evaluated to confirm the efficacy of this procedure. Skull base meningiomas that were treated with preoperative embolization were evaluated in 20 patients. The occluded arteries, embolic materials, treatment time, excision rate, neurologic manifestations, and complications were analyzed. The embolic material was 80% liquid, 30% coils, and 15% particles. The surgery was normally completed within 3 to 5 hours. Blood loss was normally approximately 250 mL, excluding four patients having the following conditions: malignant meningioma, a large tumor located on the medial side of the sphenoidal ridge, the petroclival tumor, and infiltrated tumor into the sigmoid sinus...

BACKGROUND: Lesions of the petroclival fissure are difficult to access surgically. Both retrosigmoid and presigmoid retrolabyrinthine approaches have been described to successfully treat these complex tumors. The retrosigmoid approach offers quick and familiar access, whereas the presigmoid retrolabyrinthine approach reduces the operative distance and the need for cerebellar retraction. The presigmoid retrolabyrinthine approach, however, is constrained by anatomical limits that can be subject to patient variation...

Total removal of petroclival meningioma is difficult, and aggressive extirpation is often associated with significant surgical morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome and failure pattern of treatment with Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) in patients with petroclival meningiomas. Eighty-nine consecutive patients with petroclival meningiomas underwent GKRS between 1998 and 2013. Fifty-eight patients received GKRS as a primary treatment and 31 patients underwent GKRS as a secondary treatment after microsurgery...

BACKGROUND: One study has investigated postoperative growth rates following subtotal resection of petroclival meningiomas utilizing linear measurements, which are insensitive to the multidimensional complex growth of meningiomas, to estimate tumor volume. OBJECTIVE: To describe petroclival meningioma growth patterns following less-than-complete resection utilizing volumetric analysis and to identify variables associated with tumor progression. METHODS: Patients with surgically resected WHO grade I petroclival meningiomas were retrospectively reviewed (1999-2015)...

OBJECTIVE Parasellar meningiomas tend to invade the suprasellar, cavernous sinus, and petroclival regions, encroaching on adjacent neurovascular structures. As such, they prove difficult to safely and completely resect. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has played a central role in the treatment of parasellar meningiomas. Evaluation of tumor control rates at this location using simplified single-dimension measurements may prove misleading. The authors report the influence of SRS treatment parameters and the timing and volumetric changes of benign WHO Grade I parasellar meningiomas after SRS on long-term outcome...

Background and importance The marginal tentorial artery runs over the free edge of the tentorium. Different origins have been described, always involving branches of the carotid artery. We report the superior cerebellar artery as an unknown origin of this artery. We developed our strategy in a case of a tentorial meningioma mainly supplied by this artery. Clinical presentation A 53-year-old man was admitted in our institution for the surgical treatment of a large tentorial and petroclival meningioma. A 2D conventional angiogram was insufficient to detect the tumoral blush...

One of the most important and useful pieces of information in the preoperative evaluation of a large petroclival meningioma is the running course of the abducens nerve. The abducens nerve is small and has a long intracranial course, making it prone to compression by the tumor at various anatomical points. In relatively large tumors, it is difficult to confirm the entire course of the abducens nerve, even by heavy T2-thin slice imaging. We report a case of successful preoperative estimation of the course of the abducens nerve that aided in its complete preservation during the resection of a large petroclival tumor...

BACKGROUND: Radiologic differentiation between a low-grade and high-grade lesion is crucial when deciding extent of resection and prognostication. Occasionally, imaging features can be confusing between the 2 lesions. We report a case that presented such a radiologic dilemma. The lesion appeared benign and extra-axial on routine magnetic resonance imaging sequences. However, subtle clinical and imaging clues pointed to a high-grade lesion. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 27-year-old woman presented with multiple cranial nerve palsies, gait ataxia, and features of increased intracranial pressure...

BACKGROUND: Chondrosarcomas are very rare malignant, slow-growing tumors that develop in or near the petroclival region of the brain. We report a very rare case in which the tumor originated from left petrous bone and induced intraventricular hemorrhage leading to an acute comatose presentation. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 28-year-old man initially presented to the outpatient department with a 1-month history of headache, vomiting, vertigo, and left facial numbness. A lesion at the cerebellopontine angle with extension into the middle cranial fossa was demonstrated on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging...

Objectives Numerous surgical approaches have been developed to access the petroclival region. The Kawase approach, through the middle fossa, is a well-described option for addressing cranial base lesions of the petroclival region. Our aim was to gather data about the variation of cranial nerve locations in diverse petroclival pathologies and clarify the most common pathologic variations confirmed during the anterior petrosal approach. Method A retrospective analysis was made of both videos and operative and histologic records of 40 petroclival tumors from January 2009 to September 2013 in which the Kawase approach was used...

OBJECTIVE: Transpetrosal approaches for the treatment of petroclival meningiomas are often associated with substantial morbidity and long recovery. With the goal of early clinical improvement, we have used less invasive surgical approaches for petroclival meningiomas. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 32 patients with petroclival meningiomas. Eleven patients (34.4%) were managed with lateral approaches (retrosigmoid or far lateral approach), 17 (53.1%) with anterior midline approaches (endoscopic endonasal approach [EEA]), and 4 (12...
