OBJECTIVES: Intramedullary gliomas are uncommon tumors accounting for lower than four% of all major central nervous system tumors. The goals of this retrospective multicenter research have been to evaluate their pure consequence in addition to administration.
METHODS AND MATERIALS: We studied 332 sufferers from 1984 to 2011. Histopathological examination revealed 72% ependymomas (94% have been low grade tumors), 24% astrocytomas (29% have been excessive grade tumors), 2.four% blended gliomas and 1.7% oligodendrogliomas.
RESULTS: The imply age at analysis was 42.four years for ependymomas, with male predominance, versus 39.6 years for astrocytomas. Ache was the commonest preliminary presentation. In 20% of circumstances, astrocytomas have been biopsied alone, however greater than 80% of ependymomas had surgical resection. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy have been reserved for malignant tumors, particularly in the event that they have been ependymomas. The 5-year survival price was 76.eight% for astrocytomas and 94.5% for ependymomas. Histology, purposeful standing previous to surgical procedure, and tumor grade are among the many prognostic components.
CONCLUSION: Our research confirmed that surgical therapy of gliomas is nicely codified, no less than for ependymomas, however adjuvant therapy continues to play a marginal position within the administration even in astrocytomas, that are infiltrative tumors.
