Pooled evidence of stereotactic radiosurgery in cavernous sinus meningiomas


  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), as a single treatment or co-adjuvant therapy, achieves good disease control and radiographic response in patients with cavernous sinus meningiomas (CSM).

Why this matters

  • Although complete resection is preferred for most intracranial meningiomas, SRS has been an attractive surgical option for CSM.

  • Like most benign meningiomas, CSM exhibits slow tumor growth and most studies evaluating SRS in CSM have limited follow-up.
