• radiosurgery
  • 2.) My clinical interests include improving surgical techniques for brain tumor surgery, immunotherapy for the treatment of glioblastoma, and novel uses for stereotactic radiosurgery. (stanford.edu)
  • Radiosurgery has a place in the treatment, to attempt to control these tumors, particularly in patients who refuse to permit exenteration (removal of all the contents) of the Orbit. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • My clinical and research interests focus on the development of new radiation techniques involving stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy for the treatment of malignant and benign tumors of the brain and spine, as well as functional disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia. (stanford.edu)
  • Conventional fractionation is usually reserved for lesions larger than the ones usually treated with single fraction radiosurgery, or for tumors abutting or compressing critical normal structures where there is no adequate separation for single fraction treatment. (biomedcentral.com)
  • 2000
  • NOTE: This patient underwent a Trans-sphenoidal Resection of the Rathke's Cyst tumor in early 2000 and has remained free of symptoms and is followed with yearly MRI Scans. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • cranial
  • The Middle Cranial Fossa also contains the Cavernous Sinus , an extremely difficult structure from which to remove tumors. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • He has a special interest in tumors of the lateral and posterior cranial base and has written numerous analytical papers derived from his microsurgical series. (stanford.edu)
  • Pituitary
  • The tumor (Quadrangular Arrows) abuts the Right Carotid Artery (Horizontal Arrow indicating the round "Black" structure) and slightly displaces the Pituitary Stalk (Curved Arrow) towards the Left as it compresses the Pituitary Gland within the Pituitary Fossa. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • Meningioma
  • In our series of over 150 Orbital Tumor Operations, we have had one similar case of complete removal of an Optic Nerve Meningioma with preservation of vision. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • commonly
  • The purpose of this research study is to find out whether adding an experimental vaccine called rindopepimut (also known as CDX-110) to the commonly used drug bevacizumab can improve progression free survival (slowing the growth of tumors) of patients with relapsed EGFRvIII positive glioblastoma. (stanford.edu)
  • surgical
  • Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Surgical techniques can be utilized for the majority of these tumors. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • Surgical intervention is often the first step in therapeutic management, allowing for pathologic analysis with complete or partial tumor removal. (biomedcentral.com)
  • paraganglioma
  • In 1974, Glenner and Grimley renamed the tumor paraganglioma on the basis of its anatomic and physiologic characteristics. (medscape.com)
  • Mutations of SDHB play an important role in familial adrenal pheochromocytoma and extra-adrenal paraganglioma (of abdomen and thorax), although there is considerable overlap in the types of tumors associated with SDHB and SDHD gene mutations. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • Contemporary EBRT for SB tumors typically involves both image-guided intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and conventional fractionation stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT) to maximize target conformality and reduce dose to adjacent normal structures. (biomedcentral.com)
  • inner ear
  • Unmanaged, the tumors may slowly grow out of the ear canal, destroy hearing, cause ear canal bleeding, facial paralysis, or inner ear problem. (tampabayhearing.com)
  • nerve
  • The tumor may also wrap around and infiltrate areas around the facial nerve, as it enlarges. (earsurgery.org)
  • remove this tumor, then it usually requires the removal of the blood supply to both the tumor and the Optic Nerve. (neurosurgerydallas.com)
  • Tumors within the nerve canaliculi initially present with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss, unilateral tinnitus, or disequilibrium (vertigo is rare, on account of the slow growth of neuromas). (wikipedia.org)
  • Imaging
  • Imaging studies, including a CT scanning, MRI scanning and MR angiography, should be obtained to determine the limits and extent of any glomus tumors. (earsurgery.org)
  • A combination of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scanning, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and angiography is ideal for proper diagnosis and localization of the tumors. (medscape.com)
