A giant solid cavernous hemangioma mimicking sphenoid wing meningioma in an adolescent: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(44):e13098

Department of Neurosurgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan PR China.

Rationale: Central nervous system (CNS) solid cavernous hemangiomas are rare extra-axial anomalies that may sometimes resemble meningiomas. Due to their complex vascular nature, accurate preoperative diagnosis is important to avoid disastrous hemorrhage during operation. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case in an adolescent since all middle cranial fossa hemangioma cases reported in literature are adults in their 40s or 50s and all the pediatric cases are cystic.

Prognostic factors in the surgical treatment of intracanalicular primary optic nerve sheath meningiomas.

J Neurosurg 2018 Sep 1:1-8. Epub 2018 Sep 1.

Departments of1Neurosurgery and.

OBJECTIVEAlthough meningiomas frequently involve the optic nerve, primary optic nerve sheath meningiomas (ONSMs) are rare, accounting for only 1% of all meningiomas. Given the high risk of vision loss with these tumors, surgical intervention is seldom considered, and radiation or observation is commonly applied. Here, the authors describe the visual outcomes for a series of patients who were treated with surgery aiming at maximal tumor resection and highlight their prognostic factors. Read More

Surgical outcomes after reoperation for recurrent skull base meningiomas.

J Neurosurg 2018 Apr 1:1-8. Epub 2018 Apr 1.

Departments of1Neurological Surgery and.

OBJECTIVESkull base meningiomas are surgically challenging tumors due to the intricate skull base anatomy and the proximity of cranial nerves and critical cerebral vasculature. Many studies have reported outcomes after primary resection of skull base meningiomas; however, little is known about outcomes after reoperation for recurrent skull base meningiomas. Since reoperation is one treatment option for patients with recurrent meningioma, the authors sought to define the risk profile for reoperation of skull base meningiomas. Read More

68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT Reveals Epstein-Barr Virus-Associated Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma in a Case of Suspected Sphenoid Wing Meningioma.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Apr;43(4):287-288

In this case of suspected sphenoid wing meningioma, Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT showed a somatostatin receptor (SSR)-expressing tumor with extension to the nasopharynx and SSR-expressing cervical lymph nodes. Subsequent biopsy from the nasopharynx revealed an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated, undifferentiated World Health Organization type 3 nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a potential clinical pitfall due to the reported high SSR expression of this tumor subtype. In consideration of the high target-to-background contrast, SSR ligands might be superior to F-FDG for EBV-associated NPC PET imaging, particularly at the skull base. Read More

Transorbital endoscopic eyelid approach for resection of sphenoorbital meningiomas with predominant hyperostosis: report of 2 cases.

J Neurosurg 2018 Jun 1;128(6):1885-1895. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

Departments of1Neurological Surgery.

Sphenoorbital meningiomas (SOMs) are slow-growing tumors that originate from the sphenoidal wing and are associated with visual deterioration, extrinsic ocular movement disorders, and proptosis caused by hyperostosis of the lateral wall of the orbit. In some cases, the intracranial component is quite small or "en plaque," and the majority of the symptoms arise from adjacent hyperostosis. Craniotomy has traditionally been the standard of care, but new minimally invasive multiportal endoscopic approaches offer an alternative. Read More

Degree of Vascular Encasement in Sphenoid Wing Meningiomas Predicts Postoperative Ischemic Complications.

Neurosurgery 2017 Jun;80(6):957-966

Department of Neurosurgery, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.

Background: Sphenoid wing meningiomas (SWMs) can encase arteries of the circle of Willis, increasing their susceptibility to intraoperative vascular injury and severe ischemic complications.

Objective: To demonstrate the effect of circumferential vascular encasement in SWM on postoperative ischemia.

Methods: A retrospective review of 75 patients surgically treated for SWM from 2009 to 2015 was undertaken to determine the degree of circumferential vascular encasement (0°-360°) as assessed by preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Read More

Drilling of the marginal tubercle to enhance exposure via mini pterional approach: An anatomical study and clinical series of 25 sphenoid wing meningiomas.

Surg Neurol Int 2016 12;7(Suppl 40):S989-S994. Epub 2016 Dec 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, Allegheny General Hospital, Drexel University College of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Background: The marginal tubercle (MT) of zygomatic bone can be an obstacle in the standard mini pterional (MPT) craniotomy; we aim to evaluate the effect of drilling this MT in enhancing the exposure of MPT craniotomy for resection of sphenoid wing meningiomas (SWMs).

Methods: The authors utilized 60 dry skulls to perform the anatomical part of the study. The MT size was reflected by the distance, wherein point is the most prominent part of MT and point is located on the orbital rim in the same axial plane as point . Read More

The Extended Lateral Supraorbital Approach and Extradural Anterior Clinoidectomy Through a Frontopterio-Orbital Window: Technical Note and Pilot Surgical Series.

World Neurosurg 2017 Apr 29;100:159-166. Epub 2016 Dec 29.

Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, Toronto Western Hospital, University Health Network, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Lateral approaches to treat anterior cranial fossa lesions have evolved since the first frontotemporal approach described by Dandy in 1918. We describe a less invasive approach to perform extradural anterior clinoidectomy through a lateral supraorbital (LSO) approach for anterior circulation aneurysms and anterolateral skull base lesions.

Methods: The extended LSO approach involves performing a standard lateral supraorbital craniotomy followed by drilling of the sphenoid wing and lateral wall of the orbit through the frontal bony opening of the LSO approach, without any temporal extension of the craniotomy. Read More
