Title Surgical management of posterior petrous meningiomas
Date 2003-01-01
Description Posterior petrous meningiomas (commonly termed posterior pyramid meningiomas and/or meningiomas of the posterior surface of the petrous pyramid) are the most common meningiomas of the posterior cranial fossa. They are located along the posterior surface of the temporal bone in the region of the cerebellopontine angle. They often mimic vestibular schwannomas, both clinically and on neuroimaging studies. Common clinical symptoms include hearing loss, cerebellar ataxia, and trigeminal neuropathy. The site of dural origin determines the direction of cranial nerve displacement. Total resection can be achieved in most cases with a low morbidity rate and an excellent prognosis. The authors review the surgical management of posterior petrous meningiomas.
