abstract

  • Gamma knife radiosurgery may be a useful option for the treatment of cavernous sinus meningiomas not only as an adjuvant to surgery but also as an alternative to surgical removal. We have shown it to be safe and effective even in tumors that adhere to or are in close proximity to the optic apparatus.
