Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aim of the study was to analyze the prevalence, occurrence by gender, age, place of residence, location and pathohistological type, focusing on peculiarities of the surgically removed meningiomas in the irst post-war decade in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The study was conducted in the region comprising more than 600.000 inhabitants. During the post-war decade 162 patients were surgically treated. Females accounted for 65.4%, convexity meningioma accounted for 43.8%. WHO grade I meningiomas occurred in majority of patients, 60.5%, grade II in 23.5%, and grade III in 16.0% patients. The prevalence of malignant menigeomas was signiicantly higher in males, 26.8%. Meningiomas were more common during the sixth (33.9%) and seventh (35.2%) decade of life. The somewhat higher prevalence of atypical and malignant meningiomas especially in males requires further analysis that would clarify this phenomenon.
