✓ An operative technique for total removal of large global meningiomas at the medial aspect of the sphenoid ridge is described, and experience with 11 patients reported. The technique involves extradural liberation of the dural and tumor attachments to the underlying bone, and extradural occlusion of the blood supply through bone and middle meningeal artery. Subsequent procedures are carried out sequentially in the parasellar area to free the optic nerve and carotid, in the subtemporal tentorial region to release tumor from neighboring structures, and in the Sylvian fissure to isolate the middle cerebral artery.

✓ The effect of commissural myelotomy in 24 cases with intractable pain is described. The operative technique employed with the operating microscope or magnifying glasses and a special myelotome is outlined. The results suggest an outstanding advantage in patients with bilateral metastases from malignancies except intrapelvic metastases. Patients with lumbar arachnoiditis showed a total failure of pain relief after 2 to 5 years, in spite of good relief temporarily.
