Tumors of the cerebellopontile angle; considerations on 10 cases

Cerebellopontine angle tumor

Cerebellopontine angle (CPA) lesions account for up to 10% of all intracranial tumors.

Types

The most common CPA lesions are vestibular schwannomas (70-80%), meningiomas (10-15%) and epidermoid cysts (5%). CPA tumors are estimated to be the secondary cause for up to 9.9% patients with trigeminal neuralgia.

First use of fluorescein sodium guided resection

Fluorescein sodium guided resection

The first use of fluorescence for brain tumour surgery was in 1948 by G.E. Moore 1) using fluorescein sodium, a strongly fluorescing and non-toxic agent.
