Objective: We present a large retrospective review of our institutional experience treating TSs with SRS and FSRT. We also describe a flare phenomenon experienced by some patients.
Methods: The records of 23 consecutive TSs patients treated with radiotherapy between 1996 and 2011 were reviewed. We investigated radiographic response, tumor control, and toxicity.
Objective: To analyze our surgical experience with trigeminal schwannomas.
Methods: We performed 107 operations on 105 patients harboring trigeminal schwannomas over the past 30 years. We classified the tumors as peripheral, ganglion cavernous, posterior fossa root, and dumbbell types according to the portion of the nerve that gave rise to the tumor.
