What is removal of meningioma

Removal of meningioma is the main method of treating benign or malignant meningiomas. Most of the experts use radical surgery or radiation therapy to remove meningiomas.

Meningioma resection is divided into:

  • total (whole tumor is removed);
  • subtotal or partial (only a part of tumor is removed).


Main options of meningioma treatment

The type of therapy depends on the size of the tumor, its location, the age of a patient and the presence of pathologies.

There are 2 main methods of meningioma treatment:

  • Stereotactic radiosurgery used for difficult access to the tumor and close connection of meningioma with vessels, nerve trunks, sinuses of the brain;
  • Surgical removal used in cases of the big size of meningioma (more than 3.5cm in diameter).


Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Radiosurgery is a medical procedure used for destroying of tumors or suspending their functioning by means of a single irradiation with a high dose of ionizing radiation.

Radiosurgery has two main advantages:

  1. Irradiation affects the meningioma from different directions (tumor receives the maximum possible dose of radiation)
  2. Radiosurgery is non-invasive (treatment of a tumor does not require breaking the integrity of the head tissue and opening the cranium).


The contraindication for radiosurgery is the inability to operate brain tumors over 3.5 cm in diameter.

The effectiveness of stereotactic radiosurgery is very high: about 95% of meningiomas stop their growth after a single procedure or a small course of treatment.

The main radiotherapeutic / radiosurgical units are:

  • GammaKnife;
  • CyberKnife;
  • TrueBeam.


Advantages and disadvantages of meningioma removal with the help of the GammaKnifeSurgery with GammaKnife

  • designed for non-invasive brain surgery (without the use of a scalpel);
  • has a frame based system for immobilization with radiation sources, which can causeside such effects of gamma knife surgery for meningioma as headache, nausea and a risk of infection;
  • one image of magnetic resonance imaging is used, in contrast to systems that do not use a frame for attaching the head and require constant imaging with CT during treatment, making an additional contribution to excess radiation doses;
  • small sizes of collimators protect the body tissues from the effects of radiation and excludes the possibility of treatment of metastases and tumors over 3 cm.


Features of meningioma resection with CyberKnife

  • universal method not only for treating the brain, but also for removing the tumor and metastasis throughout the body;
  • mega-voltage X-ray radiation from the CyberKnife is four times more powerful than the energy from cobalt used in the GammaKnife;
  • CyberKnife is a flexible, frameless system that allows a patient to conduct treatment in one or more sessions. This allows oncologists to choose the safest and most effective course of treatment;
  • does not require a frame screwing into the skull for immobilization, which helps to avoid headache, nausea and the risk of infection.


Peculiarities of stereotactic radiosurgery using the TrueBeam system

  • Focused radiation beams of the system destroy tumor cells without affecting the surrounding healthy tissues;
  • use of a metal frame that is bolted to the skull bones of a patient is unnecessary;
  • opportunity of fractional irradiation (treatment is divided into 2-5 small sessions, which makes possible to safely treat large meningiomas located near important structures, for example, the optic nerve);
  • TrueBeam system is equipped with modern medical imaging devices that allow a radiologist to monitor the tumor behavior in real time;
  • During visualization of pathological formations, the technology of cone-beam computed tomography (CT) is used. This method of visualization makes possible to reduce the radiation load on the patient's body by 25%.

Surgical treatment of meningiom

There are 2 indications for surgical removal of meningioma:

Endoscopic resection of meningioma

  • If the tumor is in the area of the brain that is available for surgery
  • If the tumor over 3.5 cm in diameter.


Endoscopic intervention is the minimally invasive method of meningioma removal, when the tumor is removed without opening the skull with endoscopic instruments. Removal of meningioma through transnasal access is most often used. The method is the most effective in combination with intraoperative MRI and nerve navigation systems.

Craniotomy or trepanation of the skull is carried out only if the tumor is located close to the surface. This method provides good visibility of the operating field and allows the removal of large tumors.

Clinics specialized in surgeries to remove meningioma

There are many programs of the treatment and rehabilitation provided by the leading clinics, that specialize in the treatment of meningiomas. The difference of prices depends on method of diagnostics and operation.

  • MRS - magnetic resonance spectroscopy;
  • CT - computed tomography;
  • biopsy.

Rehabilitation after removal of meningioma

The rehabilitation period can range from few weeks to a year. It depends on the method of treatment and the type of operation. The physical and psychological condition of a patient before surgery also affects the postoperative period. The recovery will occur quickly if a patient follows a doctor's prescribed rehabilitation program and takes the necessary medicines.

Consequences after meningioma removal

Consequences after the removal of meningioma depend on tumor localization, prevalence of pathological process and histologic type. Young people have none of consequences after meningioma resection in contrast to elderly patients, who face negative effects much more often.

The patient was treated of klatskin's tumor

I addressed a problem in the hepatobiliary system. Coordinator assured me that the clinic specialize in oncology and specifically in this direction too. Unfortunately, it is not. After 12 days of overdiagnosis and treatment, I feel worse than I came. Pat diagnosis could not be established. Doctor "oncologist" is not even a diagnosis on the international classification Bismuth- Corlette (saying that the tumor is not poddaetsya classification). He offered chemistry, given that the chemistry without surgical lechniya this tumor is not effective. The worst thing is that they did not offer alternative (surgical) treatment. They do not do such complicated operations. Maybe they are in the treatment of other oncology and spetsializiruyutsya, but in terms of the hepatobiliary system, zero balls. Very disappointed with the work of the coordinator, who focused on the operation and even co-ordinated on the cost. Paliative treatment is not a cure. If the coordinator did not believe me in Turkey, I would consider Israel or Germany. In the end, Ukraine and Russia are doing these operations. Thank you, co-ordinator for flights from drains and spent two weeks in the hospital with pain on their treatment.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

I'll start with the most important thing. The most important thing in a huge sea of ​​information is to choose the right "light", "lighthouse", which will point the way to a person who finds himself in this abyss with a limited time and money limit. I was lucky that I went to the website "Bukimed". I was contacted by coordinating physician Ivan Koval, who was very tactful and at the same time confidently leading me forward. I rushed from one clinic to another, from one operator to another, he calmly explained to me all the pros and cons and was support even when I already completely refused his help and tuned in to another operator. Even then, he very tactfully warned about possible pitfalls and continued to be an assistant. As a result, I took his advice and did not regret it. Hi Medical is very sympathetic to customers, helps with everything, tries to reduce customer costs, where possible. Organizes as quickly as possible consultations and time-examination. Special thanks to Victoria, who spins like a squirrel in a wheel to keep everything in order, always in touch and will not rest until the matter is brought to an end. My treatment is not yet complete, but I'm glad that I got into such a nice team, which brightens up, as much as possible, a person's life one-to-one with his illness. Thank you and for a healthy sense of humor, it also helps to overcome illness!))) And, still. Ivan was in touch with me throughout his stay in Israel. He was convinced that I flew, I was met and I was engaged. He made sure that I get everything that was promised. And after my return home, too, remains in touch, helping in my next steps. Thanks for the help!

Immediately I will note not the intrusive and at the same time "essentially" made by Alena presentation of the clinic. And really everything turned out to be as they described to me: the doctor explained how he sees my situation, what kind of opinion of Moscow doctors he agrees with, and what does not and what he proposes to do. Everything is clear and reasonable.

The patient was treated in this clinic

The clinic reacted to my disease and my condition was formally. They prescribed me antidepressants, which did not go to me (cause serious side effects). When I talked about my anguish - a doctor named Pavel stood and smiled scornfully all the time. Regarding the planned procedures: the prescribed lumbar puncture was canceled as unnecessary. The diagnosis: depression. The question arises: on the basis of what preconditions is this diagnosis made? The doctor treated me disdainfully. I do not have any questions to coordinator Olga Obishchenko: she is a very attentive and competent specialist.

The patient was treated of paraganglioma

Good afternoon to all patients who will read my review. We passed in the clinic treatment with radioactive iodine MBIG-131. Everything was organized according to the dates and very quickly. Excellent and caring interpreters accompany you throughout the treatment. Doctors are very responsive, and are also fully responsible for their patient. As for the price policy, it can be brewed and does not correspond to the original amount, which will provide accounting accounting. But in any case, this treatment is available and if compared with other countries, the price is much lower. I wish everyone success and good health !!
