Subject Tumors; Chemotherapy and Radiation Injury
Description Anterior visual pathway meningiomas (AVPM) may affect visual functions (VFNS): visual acuity (VA) and visual field (VF). Due to location, most are treated non-surgically by fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT), 28-30 fractions. Advances in technology and the will to shorten total treatment length have led to hypofractionation (HSRT), 3-5 fractions. Our purpose was to evaluate the association of radiotherapy regimen (FSRT vs HSRT) in AVPM and VFNS (VA, VF) outcomes.
