Long-term disease burden of meningioma following surgery and/or radiotherapy

Takeaway

  • Long-term disease burden of meningioma is considerable, as demonstrated by impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL), neurocognitive deficits, and high anxiety or depression levels. Treatment with a single resection results in the most optimal neurocognitive functioning.

Why this matters

    Understanding long-term burden of meningioma and related treatment will aid in managing patient expectations and developing long-term care plans.
