Atypical meningoma: current management dilemmas and prospective clinical trials


Jenkinson, Michael D; Weber, Damien C; Haylock, Brian J; Mallucci, Conor L; Zakaria, Rasheed; Javadpour, Mohsen (2015). Atypical meningoma: current management dilemmas and prospective clinical trials. Journal of Neuro-Oncology, 121(1):1-7.

Abstract

Atypical meningioma is an intermediate grade tumour with a greater risk of recurrence following surgical resection. Changes to the WHO classification have resulted in an increased reporting of these tumours. The role of early adjuvant radiotherapy after gross total resection has not been clearly defined and the literature evidence is of poor quality providing conflicting information. This review assesses the evidence for current clinical practice, management dilemmas and the need for prospective clinical trials for atypical meningioma.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
