her speech had improved enough to communicate. An MR imaging study taken 13 months after surgery showed a small enhancing lesion in the tuberculum sellae, an enlarged ventricle, and progressive tissue loss ( Fig. 6 ). The enhancing lesion was small and seemed to have slightly decreased in size. We planned a short-term follow-up without adjuvant treatment. F ig . 6.

tuberculum sellae. The rate of tumor recurrence, time to recurrence, time of last follow-up, survival, and disease-free survival were collected and analyzed for the entire cohort with subgroup analysis. Parametric data were expressed as means ± standard deviations and compared using the Student ttest. Proportional data were compared using the chi-square or Fisher exact test. The RFS curves were generated using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared between children with and without residual calcifications using the log-rank test. All statistics were completed with SPSS

-specific injury thresholds. In time, this could lead to development of age-adapted protective headgear, based on age-specific injury thresholds. Marcus et al. also acknowledge the fact that a 3D structure will be better described if some kind of 3D measurements are used instead of purely 2D measurements. 34 , 35 In a recent report they presented a semiautomated CT-based application for 3D characterization of skull morphology, using 3D vector analysis. 34 Using a set of vectors emanating at prescribed angles from a single fixed point (the tuberculum sellae), they found that 3D

sella. 1 Previously, TSS had been considered a contraindication for lesions originating in, or extending into, the extrasellar space with a normal-size sella; 8 however, the transsphenoidal removal of supradiaphragmatic craniopharyngiomas became possible through adoption of exTSS, which was originally described by Weiss in 1987. 60 This approach, which involves removal of the tuberculum sellae and planum sphenoidale, has several advantages. 1) It offers excellent midline access and visibility to the suprasellar region without brain retraction. 2) It permits early
