abstract

  • For the follow-up periods in our series (median, >4 yr), GK radiosurgery seems to be both safe (permanent morbidity rate, 1%) and effective (97% neurological improvement/stability, 97.5% overall TGC, and 96.5% actuarial TGC at 5 yr). GK radiosurgery might be considered a first-choice treatment for selected patients with cavernous sinus meningiomas.
