Summary of "Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Anterior Clinoid Process Meningiomas: A Series of 61 Consecutive Patients."

Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) outcomes for anterior clinoid process (ACP) meningiomas have not been specifically reported within any meningioma series. We present the initial and largest series in the literature that describes the presenting features, radiosurgery parameters, and radiological and long-term clinical outcomes for 61 patients with ACP meningiomas treated with GKRS.

Factors Associated with Treatment Failure and Radiosurgery-related Edema in WHO Grade I and II Meningioma Patients Receiving Gamma Knife Radiosurgery.

Prior to the advent of radiosurgery, neurosurgical treatment of meningiomas typically involved gross total resection of the mass whenever surgery was deemed possible. Over the past four decades, thoug...

Gamma knife radiosurgery for trigeminal neuralgia: first case series from Latin America.

Gamma Knife® radiosurgery (GKRS) for trigeminal neuralgia is an effective treatment with at least a 50% reduction of pain in 75-95% of patients.

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Meningioma.

Since its first reported use in 1976 in Sweden, Gamma Knife (GK) radiosurgery has become an accepted treatment option for intracranial meningioma, either upfront, in combination with planned subtotal ...

Frameless Stereotactic Radiosurgery on the Gamma Knife Icon: Early Experience From 100 Patients.

The Gamma Knife (GK) Icon (Elekta AB) uses a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner and an infrared camera system to support the delivery of frameless stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). There are ...

Gamma knife radiosurgery for choroidal hemangioma; a single-institute series.

Choroidal hemangioma (CH) is a benign vascular tumor that induces subretinal fluid collection or exudative retinal detachment (RD) and consequent visual symptoms. Current standard treatments for CH in...

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Treatment of Essential Tremor

The purpose of this study is to examine effects (good and bad) of gamma knife radiosurgery for essential tremor. The gamma knife places a small lesion in the brain to suppress tremors.

Early Stereotactic Gamma Knife Radiosurgery to Residual Tumor After Surgery of Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma

Gamma GBM is a single-arm phase II trial that prospectively measures the progression-free survival time after addition of an early gamma knife boost to areas of residual tumor to standard-...

Cognitive Outcome After Gamma Knife Radiosurgery in Patients With Brain Metastases (CAR-Study A)

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is increasingly applied in patients with brain metastases (BM) and is expected to have less adverse effects on cognitive functioning than Whole Brain Radiat...

Study of Gamma-Knife Radiosurgery Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Spectroscopy for Recurrent Glioma

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, of treating patients with recurrent glioblastoma using Gamma-Knife Radiosurgery (GKS) to target a tumor volume defined by a combination...

Multicenter Evaluation of the Effect of Upfront Radiosurgery on Residual Growth Hormone-secreting Pituitary Adenoma

In this study, the investigators hypothesize that upfront gamma knife radiosurgery with drug therapy is superior in the treatment of growth hormone-secreting pituitary tumors after primary...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The state or process hypothesized to account for poorer learning rate for elements later in a series as compared to the learning rate for elements coming earlier in a series.

Industrial chemicals which have become widespread environmental pollutants. Each aroclor is a mixture of chlorinated biphenyls (1200 series) or chlorinated terphenyls (5400 series) or a combination of both (4400 series).

Serum globulins that migrate to the gamma region (most positively charged) upon ELECTROPHORESIS. At one time, gamma-globulins came to be used as a synonym for immunoglobulins since most immunoglobulins are gamma globulins and conversely most gamma globulins are immunoglobulins. But since some immunoglobulins exhibit an alpha or beta electrophoretic mobility, that usage is in decline.

Members of the beta-globin family. In humans, two non-allelic types of gamma-globin - A gamma and G gamma are encoded in the beta-globin gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 11. Two gamma-globin chains combine with two ZETA-GLOBIN chains to form the embryonic hemoglobin Portland. Fetal HEMOGLOBIN F is formed from two gamma-globin chains combined with two ALPHA-GLOBIN chains.

A metabolic process that converts GLUCOSE into two molecules of PYRUVIC ACID through a series of enzymatic reactions. Energy generated by this process is conserved in two molecules of ATP. Glycolysis is the universal catabolic pathway for glucose, free glucose, or glucose derived from complex CARBOHYDRATES, such as GLYCOGEN and STARCH.
