While resection of the dural attachment has been shown by Simpson and others to reduce recurrence rates for intracranial meningiomas, the oncological benefit of dural resection for spinal meningiomas is less clear. The authors performed a systematic analysis of the literature, comparing recurrence rates for patients undergoing various Simpson grade resections of spinal meningiomas to better understand the role of dural resection on outcomes after resection of spinal meningiomas.

Clinoidal meningiomas present specific characteristics related to their peculiar site of anatomical origin. Clinical series focusing on pure clinoidal meningiomas are not numerous. We performed a syst...
Thoracic spinal psammomatous meningioma is a rare subtype of meningioma. Surgery is the definitive treatment for symptomatic spinal meningiomas and offers a substantial possibility for complete resect...
Preoperative embolization (POE) of meningioma has been established to facilitate surgical resection, which may reduce intraoperative blood loss and surgical time. However, no consensus has been achiev...
Postoperative seizures following surgical resection of intracranial meningiomas negatively impacts the quality of life (QoL) of patients. The aim of this meta-analysis was to pool the current literatu...
Abdominoperineal resection (APR) is the primary surgical approach to low rectal cancers. Both prone and lithotomy patient positioning during the perineal dissection are currently acceptable approaches...
The rationale behind the dural puncture epidural (DPE) technique lies in the fact that a dural perforation with a spinal needle purportedly creates a conduit for accelerated translocation ...

Epidural, Combined Spinal-Epidural, and more recently dural puncture epidural are forms of neuraxial anesthesia used to provide pain relief in laboring women . The investigators want to as...
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.
A secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
Nursing care provided cancer patients. It includes aspects of family functioning through education of both patient and family. The specialty of oncologic nursing focuses on cancer as a major health care problem.
A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
