Cavernous malformations (CM) represent a distinct subgroup of brain vascular malformations that are characterized by small sinusoidal vascular channels with hyaline degeneration and old blood pigments. Because of the increasing availability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) they are detected much more frequently in the present era. CM may be solitary or found in the context of a familial variant that results in an increasing number of CM developing as the patient ages. Because of the variable risk of suba...
To analyse the results of stereotactic radiosurgery and/or surgical treatment of 18 cases with cavernous malformation and report 2 cases with unusual localisation and size.
Leksell stereotactic radiosurgery has proven to be effective for less common tumors encountered in the brain, including hemangiomas of the orbit or cavernous sinus, recurrent hemangiopericytomas, and both sporadic hemangioblastomas as well as those encountered in the context of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. While all three tumors are responsive to single-session radiosurgery, hemangiomas and hemangiopericytomas are the most likely to demonstrate tumor regression. Hemangiopericytomas that recur after init...
Magnetic resonance (MR) thermography-guided laser interstitial thermal therapy, or stereotactic laser ablation (SLA), is a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery for focal epilepsy caused by cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs). We examined the safety and effectiveness of SLA of epileptogenic CCMs.
Today, stereotactic radiosurgery is an effective therapy for a variety of intracranial pathology that were treated solely with open neurosurgery in the past. The technique was developed from the combination of therapeutic radiation and stereotactic devices for the precise localization of intracranial targets. Although stereotactic radiosurgery was originally performed as a partnership between neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists, this partnership has weakened in recent years, with some procedures being p...
The outcome of patients with malignant gliomas has not substantially improved, even with advances in imaging, neurosurgery, molecular subtyping, and radiation, and newer oncologic options. Maximal safe resection when feasible remains the initial treatment of choice for most malignant gliomas. These tumors often recur and require additional therapy to control the tumor growth. Leksell stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is offered as salvage therapy in patients with recurrent or residual malignant gliomas. SRS i...
Seizures are the second most common clinical presentation in patients with brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and they are the most common presentation of unruptured AVMs. The aim of this multicenter, retrospective cohort study was to identify predictors of seizure presentation in AVM patients treated with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).
The aim of this study was to analyze serum levels of and endostatin in patients with cerebral treated by stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and to assess their association with radiological radiation-induced changes (RICs).
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (fSRT) as salvage therapy for recurrent high-grade glioma and to look at the overall efficacy of treatment with linear accelerator (LINAC)-based radiosurgery and fractionated radiotherapy.
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) related to a brainstem cavernous malformation (CM) is a rare entity. We present the first radiosurgical management of a patient with TN secondary to a CM.
Cavernous malformations may be familial or nonfamilial. This systematic review compares the natural history of cavernous malformations in familial compared to non-familial cases.
Stereotactic radiosurgery using the Leksell Gamma Knife has proven to be a valuable alternative to orbital enucleation or fractionated radiation therapy for primary tumors of the orbit, metastatic tumors to the choroid, and primary uveal melanomas. With this approach in a single outpatient setting, the eye is immobilized by a local block after which high-definition MRI or CT is performed to define the target. After rapid dose planning, radiation delivery is completed before the local block dissipates. The t...
Sporadic brain cavernous malformations commonly correlate with developmental venous anomalies; however, developmental venous anomalies may exist without cavernous malformations. Infratentorial location and specific angioarchitectural features of the developmental venous anomaly increase the odds of a concomitant malformation. Animal data also suggest chronic inflammatory disease, oxidative stress, and angiogenesis promote cavernous malformation development. We sought to determine potential clinical and radi...
Management of craniopharyngiomas remains challenging due to the tumor's often intimate relationship with the optic apparatus, the hypothalamus, and the pituitary gland. Often multimodal management is needed to achieve the best treatment outcome: tumor control coupled with endocrine, visual, and neurocognitive preservation. Many surgeons favor initial subtotal resection followed by adjunctive therapy to improve quality of life in a tumor with potentially long-term survival even if coupled with a need for per...
Surgery is the only therapeutic option for cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM) and is proposed, whenever possible, after haemorrhagic events, neurological symptoms, or epilepsy, radiosurgery being a controversial alternative in some cases. However, there is no treatment for non-accessible lesions, such as brainstem CCM, multiple CCM, or those located in functional areas. Propranolol, a non-selective beta-blocker used as first-line treatment for infantile haemangiomas, has proved spectacularly effective i...
The response of brain metastases (BM) treated with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI; PD(L)-1) is of significant interest.
Significant heterogeneity exists in target volumes for postoperative stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for brain metastases. A set of contouring guidelines was recently published, and we investigated the impact of deviations.
Prior retrospective and prospective studies suggest improved survival with the use of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and bevacizumab in the treatment of limited-volume glioblastoma (GBM) recurrences.
Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) are vascular lesions of the brain that may lead to hemorrhage, seizures, and neurologic deficits. Most are linked to loss-of-function mutations in 1 of 3 genes, namely CCM1 (originally called KRIT1), CCM2 (MGC4607), or CCM3 (PDCD10), that can either occur as sporadic events or are inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern with incomplete penetrance. Familial forms originate from germline mutations, often have multiple intracranial lesions that grow in size and number...
Cavernous sinus hemangiomas (CSHs) are rare vascular tumors. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is now an effective treatment for small CSHs. The optimum treatment for giant CSHs is still controversial. This study reports the advantages of a complete intradural transcavernous approach in the total resection of CSHs.
It was not until relatively recently that the method of stereotactic radiosurgery has started to be used for treating trigeminal neuralgia. Being minimally invasive, this method can be considered an attractive alternative to invasive surgical methods.
The purpose of this research was to study the outcome of brain metastases in a cohort of patients undergoing a second course of stereotactic image-guided robotic radiosurgery, and to identify predictors corelated with survival.
For more than 65 years localization of brain targets suitable for stereotactic radiosurgery has been performed after application of an intracranial guiding device to the cranial vault. After imaging and dose planning the same frame is used to secure the target at the focus of the intersection of the ionizing radiation beams that create the radiobiological effect. Non-invasive immobilization systems first proposed for linear accelerator or proton radiation technologies have now been developed for the Leksell...
Traditional outcome measures after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) have focused predominantly on angiographic obliteration and general neurologic complications. Several grading scales attempting to predict the outcome for specific patients have previously been proposed and validated, and are outlined here. These have largely been based on both AVM and patient characteristics and attempt to predict obliteration. However, the most practical and clinically orient...
This meta-analysis is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of gamma knife radiosurgery for treating cavernous malformation.
