This issue of theJournal of Neurosurgery includes a very nice paper by Fukushima and colleagues from the University of Tokyo, analyzing the influence on recurrence of detaching the residual tumor from its dural origin in meningiomas that cannot be completely removed surgically.1 The authors were very careful to analyze a very specific group of patients. They retrospectively studied all cases of Simpson Grade IV resection for WHO Grade I meningiomas operated on at their institution from 1995 to 2010. From this group they excluded patients who were lost to follow-up, patients who had a history of
