Abstract

Advances in imaging and surgical technique have improved the treatment of spinal meningiomas; these include magnetic resonance imaging, intraoperative ultrasonography, neuromonitoring, the operative microscope, and ultrasonic cavitation aspirators. This study is a retrospective review of all patients treated at a single institution and with a pathologically confirmed diagnosis of spinal meningioma. Additionally the authors analyze data obtained in 556 patients reported in six large series in the literature, evaluating surgical techniques, results, and functional outcomes. Overall, surgical treatment of spinal meningiomas is associated with favorable outcomes. Spinal meningiomas can be completely resected, are associated with postoperative functional improvement, and the rate of recurrence is low.
