Author information

  • 1Department of Neurosurgery, Nordstadt Hospital, Hannover, Federal Republic of Germany.


Treatment of petroclival meningiomas have been a matter of discussion in neurosurgery. Since the advent of microsurgery, and with development of new skull base approaches more recently, the treatment of these tumours has become standardised, and the post-operative results considerably improved. However, potential complications have been related with the surgical removal of these lesions. The authors describe their experience and summarise the major reports of the literature on this subject.
