OBJECT: Lateral ventricular trigone meningioma is relatively rare and surgical resection is the main treatment strategy. It is a challenge to achieve total resection without any complication. We analyzed a series of cases with literature review.
METHODS: Retrospective data was collected for patients with surgical treatment for trigone meningioma at our department from 2007 to 2012.
RESULTS: 43 cases were included. 12 were male and 31 were female. The averaging age was 42.8 years old. The symptoms depend on tumor size and location. 38 had prominent symptoms. The pre-operative neuroimaging could help assessing the entity, size, location, and blood supply of the tumor. All lesions were resected using trans-sulcal temporal or parietal approach, with intra-operative ultrasound assistant. The total resection was achieved in all cases. 36 were given ventricular drainage, removed one to 14 days later. Of the patients having prominent symptoms, 31 relieved soon after the operation, the other seven improved to some extent in long-term follow-up. Two developed intra-operative distant epidural hematoma confirmed by ultrasound and underwent hematoma evacuation immediately. Two were re-operated on for extensive intra-cranial hypertension. Three developed localized hydrocephalus with two underwent ventriculo-peritoneal shunt several months later and one relieved spontaneously. One of grade II and two of grade III meningioma went on for adjuvant radiotherapy. The follow-up period ranged from two to 71 months, with no recurrence.
CONCLUSIONS: The surgical resection through trans-sulcal approach with intra-operative ultrasound assistant can achieve high rate of total resection and low rate of complication, promising a good prognosis. The management technique and peri-operative treatment have to be individualized.
