  • [Title] Stereotactic coregistration of 201Tl SPECT and MRI applied to brain tumor biopsies.
  • The aim of the present study was to determine the clinical feasibility of integration of stereotactic SPECT (sSPECT) with 201Tl in the stereotactic MRI (sMRI)-based planning of brain tumor biopsy.
  • METHODS: Ten patients underwent combined 201Tl SPECT- and MRI-guided stereotactic biopsy of intracranial lesions according to a previously described technique.
  • An extensive histologic diagnosis (tumor grade, mitotic index [MI], and Ki67 index) and the 201Tl index were obtained for all samples and compared statistically.
  • Ki67 index, MI, and tumor grade correlated significantly.
  • A trend to significance existed between tumor grade and 201Tl index (R = 0.31; P = 0.06).
  • In 4 of the 10 patients, a variation in tumor grade could be observed along the trajectory.
  • CONCLUSION: These results support the view that 201Tl SPECT may contribute to the successful management of brain tumor patients requiring stereotactic biopsy, without causing a significant increase in discomfort or morbidity.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate genomic DNA imbalances in ependymomas (EDMs) and their correlations with the tumor histological types, grades, locations, patients' gender and age.
  • Chromosomal +1q and +7p happened predominantly in intracranial EDMs with an averagely onset age of <or= 30 years, and +7 was only detected in spinal EDMs of patients over 30 years old, the differences were statistically significant (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The frequencies of chromosomal imbalances in EDMs decrease as the tumor grade increases.
  • Characteristic chromosomal imbalances in each subtype may play an important role in determination of histological phenotypes and tumor grades.

  • [Title] Multivoxel proton MRS for differentiation of radiation-induced necrosis and tumor recurrence after gamma knife radiosurgery for brain metastases.
  • Multivoxel proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) was used for differentiation of radiation-induced necrosis and tumor recurrence after gamma knife radiosurgery for intracranial metastases in 33 consecutive cases.
  • Metabolic imaging defined four types of lesions: pure tumor recurrence (11 cases), partial tumor recurrence (11 cases), radiation-induced tumor necrosis (10 cases), and radiation-induced necrosis of the peritumoral brain (1 case).
  • In 1 patient, radiation-induced tumor necrosis was diagnosed 9 months after radiosurgery; however, partial tumor recurrence was identified 6 months later.
  • In conclusion, multivoxel proton MRS is an effective diagnostic modality for identification of radiation-induced necrosis and tumor recurrence that can be used for monitoring of metabolic changes in intracranial neoplasms after radiosurgical treatment.
  • It can be also helpful for differentiation of radiation-induced necrosis of the tumor and that of the peritumoral brain, which may have important clinical and medicolegal implications.

  • [Title] Acute neurocognitive impairment during cranial radiation therapy in patients with intracranial tumors.
  • We assessed patients with and without intracranial tumors to distinguish between direct and indirect radiation effects on brain tissue.
  • Sixty-four patients received RT to the brain (55 with, 9 without intracranial tumor).
  • RESULTS: Patients with intracranial tumor demonstrated attention (19-38th percentile) and verbal memory scores (34-46th percentile) below the population average at baseline.
  • The average Verbal Memory score was significantly different between patients with intracranial tumor and controls both at baseline (38th vs. 58th percentile) and after irradiation (27th vs. 52th percentile).
  • Radiation dose-related deficits were seen for working memory performance in patients with intracranial tumor.
  • Patients with intracranial tumor show a deterioration of almost all memory functions with a dose-dependent impairment in working memory.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: In 1871, Virchow described a type of tumor, which he named myxoma, which had a similar appearance to mucinous tissue of the umbilical cord.
  • From an etiologic perspective, intracranial myxoma is divided into either primary or secondary induction.
  • The majority of primary myxomas are found at the skull base, whereas secondary intracranial myxomas are mainly caused by metastatic tumor emboli from the cardiac myxomas; the emboli may also transfer to cerebrovascular endothelium to cause fusiform aneurysm.
  • Surgical approaches were variable and selected according to tumor locations.
  • During the period of follow-up, remission was gained in 6 cases and tumor recurrence in 4 patients; 1 patient died.

  • [Title] Intraindividual comparison between gadopentetate dimeglumine and gadobutrol for magnetic resonance perfusion in normal brain and intracranial tumors at 3 Tesla.
  • PURPOSE: To investigate possible intraindividual differences of high- versus low-molar contrast agents on PWI at 3T in patients with intracranial space-occupying lesions.
  • On each occasion, an exogenous contrast-based, T2*-weighted, gradient-recalled echo-planar imaging (EPI) technique was used to determine the intracranial perfusion characteristics using one of two intravenous contrast agents: either 5 ml of 1.0 M gadobutrol or 10 ml of 0.5 M gadopentetate dimeglumine.
  • The ratio of C(max) between the whole tumor and whole normal side hemisphere was higher in five out of the six intraaxial tumor cases.
  • A significantly higher ratio (Delta C(max)/C(max)) in the difference between C(max) of gray and white matter (from hemisphere without brain lesion) compared to C(max) for the hemisphere containing the neoplasm (hemisphere with brain lesion) was demonstrated for gadobutrol in intraaxial tumors (P<0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: Higher-concentration 1.0 M gadobutrol can offer advantages over standard 0.5 M gadopentetate dimeglumine, particularly with respect to delineation between gray and white matter and for the demarcation of highly vascularized tumor tissue on brain PWI performed at 3T.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULT: Of the 27 malignant cases the 3 and 5-year survival rates were 81.9% (22/27) and 62.9% (17/27) respectively, and one tumor free case living well more than 9 years.
  • There were no recurrence in 10 cases with benign tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Various craniofacial approaches except lateral rhinotomy provide directly satisfactory tumor exposure and facilitate enbloc resection of the naso paranasal sinus tumor with intracranial extension.
  • Partial or total maxillary swing combined with naso pyramid translocation is good for tumor involving the skull base without intracranial invasion.
  • The fronto-nasal pyramid translocation is good for removal of the upper part of nasal tumor with intracranial extension on well developed frontal sinus.
  • The fronto orbital approach is proper for removal of fronto-sphenoid tumor and midface degloving may be used in selected cases.

  • OBJECTIVE: To develop outcome predictors after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in patients with intracranial ependymomas who had received previous fractionated radiation therapy, we compared tumor control, survival, and complications with tumor grade, volume, age of patients, and imaging characteristics.
  • Lower histological tumor grade was not significantly associated with better progression-free survival (P = 0.725).
  • Factors associated with an improved progression-free survival included smaller tumor volume and homogeneous tumor contrast enhancement in low-grade ependymomas.

  • [Title] An unusual case of tumor-to-cavernoma metastasis. A case report and literature review.
  • BACKGROUND: Metastases of systemic neoplasia to preexisting intracranial mass lesions are uncommon phenomena.
  • Tumor-to-intracranial cavernoma metastases are even more unusual and rarely reported.
  • We describe here a case of melanoma to intracranial cavernoma metastasis.
  • CONCLUSION: This case report represents the third recorded case of tumor-to-intracranial cavernoma metastasis and the first melanoma to intracranial cavernoma metastasis.
  • An extensive literature review of tumor-to-intracranial tumor metastases was conducted and disclosed an increase in reporting of the uncommon phenomenon of metastasis into preexisting intracranial lesions.
  • It should therefore be considered as a differential diagnosis in patients with history of systemic cancer who present with progression of preexistent intracranial lesions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PATIENTS: Intracranial HPCs within the temporal fossa.
  • INTERVENTIONS: Craniotomy for either subtotal or gross total tumor excision.
  • Gross total tumor excision was achieved in 2 patients, whereas subtotal tumor excision was achieved in 3 patients.
  • Reasons for subtotal resection included excessive intraoperative blood loss and inextricable tumor.
  • Histologically, all tumors were composed of tightly packed, randomly oriented (jumbled-up) tumor cells with little intervening collagen.
  • CONCLUSION: Management of temporal fossa HPC is challenging because clinical presentation is often late, and extent of tumor excision is constrained by vital structures in the cranial base and intracranial contents.
  • A multidisciplinary approach with neurosurgery and neurotology undertaken to achieve the most complete tumor resection possible, whereas minimizing morbidity are likely to confer a longer period of symptom-free survival and improves curability of these difficult lesions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Complete surgical resection beyond tumor margins cannot be achieved in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) because of infiltrative nature.
  • In several cancers, neoadjuvant treatment has been implemented to reduce the risk of tumor cell spreading during resection.
  • In GBM, the objective of a neoadjuvant approach is reduction of tumor cells within the main tumor mass and beyond in the infiltration zone.
  • Such an approach can only be performed if elevated intracranial pressure can be medically controlled.
  • In a previous study with recurrent gliomas, we showed that local intratumoral injection of radiolabeled DOTAGA-substance P substantially inhibited further growth and led to radionecrotic transformation of the tumor (CCR 2006).
  • Neoadjuvant injection of [90Y]-DOTAGA-substance P was feasible without decompensation of intracranial pressure.
  • The high extent of resection and concomitant irradiation of tumor cells in the infiltration zone may be prognostically relevant.

  • OBJECTIVE: Chondrosarcoma of the skull base is an uncommon neoplasm comprising 0.15% of all intracranial tumors and 6% of skull base neoplasms.
  • Of the seven patients who underwent surgery via the infratemporal fossa approach, one had residual tumor found at 1 year, but remained alive and well for 21 years after the surgery.
  • The improved exposure afforded by this approach seems to have resulted in more complete extirpation of the tumor and a decrease in the recurrence rate.

  • [Title] The role of stereotactic radiosurgery for intracranial hemangioblastomas.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in the management of recurrent or residual intracranial hemangioblastomas, we assessed tumor control, survival, and complications in 32 consecutive patients.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of 32 consecutive hemangioblastoma patients (74 intracranial tumors) who underwent gamma knife SRS.
  • Follow-up imaging studies demonstrated tumor control in 68 tumors (91.9%).
  • Factors associated with an improved progression-free survival included von Hippel-Lindau disease-associated hemangioblastoma, solid tumor, lower tumor volume, and greater marginal dose.
  • CONCLUSION: SRS is an important tool in the management of hemangioblastomas and is associated with a high tumor control rate and a low risk of adverse radiation effects.

  • [Title] Interleukin-23-expressing bone marrow-derived neural stem-like cells exhibit antitumor activity against intracranial glioma.
  • Neural progenitor-like cells have been isolated from bone marrow and the cells have the ability of tracking intracranial tumor.
  • However, the capacity of the cells to deliver molecules for activating immune response against intracranial tumor and the identity of cellular and molecular factors that are involved in such immune responses have yet to be elucidated.
  • Here, we isolated neural stem-like cells from the bone marrow of adult mice.
  • By genetically manipulating bone marrow-derived neural stem-like cells (BM-NSC) to express a recently discovered cytokine, interleukin (IL)-23, the cells showed protective effects in intracranial tumor-bearing C57BL/6 mice.
  • Furthermore, the IL-23-expressing BM-NSC-treated survivors were resistant to the same tumor rechallenge associated with enhanced IFN-gamma, but not IL-17, expression in the brain tissue.
  • Taken together, these data suggest that IL-23-expressing BM-NSCs can effectively induce antitumor immunity against intracranial gliomas.

  • Determination of MIC-1/GDF15 protein levels by ELISA in the CSF of a cohort of 94 patients with intracranial tumors including gliomas, meningioma and metastasis revealed significantly increased concentrations in glioblastoma patients (median, 229 pg/ml) when compared with control cohort of patients treated for non-neoplastic diseases (median below limit of detection of 156 pg/ml, p < 0.0001, Mann-Whitney test).
  • In conclusion, MIC-1/GDF15 protein measured in the CSF may have diagnostic and prognostic value in patients with intracranial tumors.

  • [Title] Intracranial and spinal ependymoma: series at Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de São Paulo.
  • OBJECTIVE: Ependymomas are rare intracranial neuroepithelial tumors and the most common location is intramedullary.
  • METHOD: Data of clinical presentation, tumor location, duration of symptoms, degree of resection and complementary treatment of 34 patients with intracranial ependymoma and 31 with intramedullary ependymoma who underwent surgery in the last ten years were collected and correlated with the recurrence time and overall survival.
  • RESULTS: There was statistically significant correlation between the degree of resection and intracranial tumor location, although it is not a hallmark of recurrence.
  • CONCLUSION: The location of the intracranial tumor is connected with the degree of resection; however it is not a predictive factor to overall survival.

  • We present two cases of CCMs with anaplastic features in the intracranial and intraspinal region.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intracranial lesion in the right frontal lobe in the male patient, and an intradural extramedullary lesion at C7 in the female patient.
  • Tumor cells were immunoreactive to epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and vimentin, with a high MIB-1 index up to 40%.
  • Based on its aggressive behavior, we recommend postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy or chemotherapy even if total excision of the tumor has been performed, and MRI scans every 3-6 months during the first period of follow-up.

  • [Title] Intracranial schwannomas of the lower cranial nerves.
  • PATIENTS: All patients with intracranial lower cranial nerve schwannomas treated surgically in our institution between July 1998 and July 2005.
  • INTERVENTION: A retrosigmoid, transcondylar, or combined approach was used for tumor recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Thirty-nine patients underwent surgical resection, with complete tumor removal in 32, near-total resection in 5 patients, and subtotal tumor excision in 2 patients.
  • Long-term (mean, 8.2 years) magnetic resonance imaging surveillance demonstrated recurrent tumor in 2 of 32 complete resections and slow regrowth in 2 of 7 patients with known residual disease.
  • DISCUSSION: Intracranial schwannomas of the lower cranial nerves are relatively uncommon and may present with subtle or no clinical symptoms.
  • Successful surgical resection with low risk of tumor recurrence can be achieved with the retrosigmoid or transcondylar approach.

  • It is difficult to diagnose CPP preoperatively when the main portion of the tumor is not located in the 4th ventricle.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an intracerebellar solid tumor with multilocular cysts, extending towards both the right lateral medullary region and the foramen of Luschka.
  • Angiographically, via the right posterior inferior cerebellar artery revealed the tumor was faintly opacified.
  • Tumor was subtotally resected through a right suboccipital craniectomy.
  • CPP should be considered among calcified and enhanced masses in the lateral medullary to cerebellopontine angle space in adults, even if the main portion of the tumor is not located in the 4th ventricle.

  • Unusual locations for intracranial schwannomas have also been reported in association with neurofibromatosis.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a large tentorial-based tumor.
  • At surgery the origin of the tumor was clearly the tentorium, and while the trigeminal nerve was displaced, it easily separated from the mass.
  • CONCLUSION: While there are few reported cases of tentorial-based schwannoma, these tumors have been noted in unusual locations within the intracranial vault, and clinicians should be aware of this diversity of origin.

  • Mean diffusivity (MD) and fractional anisotropy (FA) values were measured in regions of solid tumor, surrounding edema and normal white matter of the high grade cerebral gliomas.
  • Anatomic relationship between intracranial tumors and surrounding fibers was analysed on fractional anisotropic (FA) map, color-coded directional map, three-dimensional white matter tractography.
  • RESULTS: The DTI patterns altered by the tumor were categorized as follows: displacement, infiltration and destruction.
  • Apparently significant differences of MD were found in solid tumor, surrounding edema, compared with normal white matter regions (P < 0.05).
  • But there was no significant difference among solid tumor and surrounding edema region (P > 0.05).
  • There were significant differences of FA between solid tumor, surrounding edema and normal white matter region (P < 0.05).
  • MD and FA values could be used to distinguish normal white matter from solid tumor and surrounding edema region of high grade glioma.

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed cervical intramedullary tumor.
  • He underwent surgery of debulking of the cervical tumor, fractionated stereotactic irradiation, and repeated chemotherapy using nimustine hydrochloride (ACNU).
  • Although dissemination of the tumor in the intracranial space deteriorated the patient, he survived for 26 months after the initial onset.

  • Twenty-one patients had simultaneously assessable intracranial lesions (ICLs) and extracranial lesions (ECLs), 17 of them (81.0%) showed comparable tumor response.
  • Severity of skin toxicity was tightly associated with tumor response and patient survival (P = 0.007 and <0.001) and the association was consistent in the analysis using early toxicity profile (P = 0.033 and 0.001).
  • In conclusion, gefitinib is active in patients with brain metastasis from NSCLC and tumor response is related to skin toxicity.

  • [Title] Intracranial ependymoma: factors affecting outcome.
  • Ependymomas account for 2-9% of all neuroepithelial tumors, amounting to 6-12% of all intracranial tumors in children and up to 30% of those in children younger than 3 years.
  • Recent findings provide evidence that intracranial and spinal ependymomas share similar molecular profiles with the radial glia of their corresponding locations.
  • The management of intracranial ependymoma is still not optimal.
  • For high-risk patients, with residual tumor, an interesting, although experimental, approach could be chemotherapy followed by secondary surgery and postoperative conformal irradiation.
