Meningiomas, Volume 169, Part One, serves as a comprehensive review of the neurosurgical issues surrounding this extremely common brain tumor. Few procedures in surgery are more immediately formidable than an attack upon a large tumor of this type. In this volume of the Handbook of Clinical Neurology, experts in the field - from basic scientists to skilled neurosurgeons - have provided up-to-date synopses of each topic as it relates to this class of tumor. Surgical and radiation therapy, which remain the mainstays of treatment, are a major focus, but coverage also includes potential molecular avenues for the development of effective medical treatments.

Key Features

  • Provides current reviews of neurosurgical issues, such as endoscopic surgery, molecular biology of meningiomas, and the role of different radiation oncology treatment modalities and drug therapies
  • Addresses multiple patient populations – children, elderly and those with multiple or radiation-induced tumors
  • Offers a strong focus on anatomy and surgical approaches
  • Features leaders in neurosurgery and neuro-oncology from around the globe – the broadest, most expert coverage available


Neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuro-oncologists at a variety of levels
