Surgical outcomes after reoperation for recurrent non–skull base meningiomas

Restricted access

OBJECTIVE

Recurrent meningiomas are primarily managed with radiation therapy or repeat resection. Surgical morbidity after reoperation for recurrent meningiomas is poorly understood. Thus, the objective of this study was to report surgical outcomes after reoperation for recurrent non–skull base meningiomas.

METHODS

A retrospective review of patients was performed. Inclusion criteria were patients with recurrent meningioma who had prior resection and supratentorial non–skull base location. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression and recursive partitioning analysis were used to identify risk factors for surgical complications.

RESULTS

The authors identified 67 patients who underwent 111 reoperations for recurrent supratentorial non–skull base meningiomas. The median age was 53 years, 49% were female, and the median follow-up was 9.8 years. The most common presenting symptoms were headache, weakness, and seizure. The WHO grade after the last reoperation was grade I in 22% of cases, grade II in 51%, and grade III in 27%. The tumor grade increased at reoperation in 22% of cases. Tumors were located on the convexity (52%), parasagittal (33%), falx (31%), and multifocal (19%) locations. Tumors involved the middle third of the sagittal plane in 52% of cases. In the 111 reoperations, 48 complications occurred in 32 patients (48%). There were 26 (54%) complications requiring surgical intervention. There was no perioperative mortality. Complications included neurological deficits (14% total, 8% permanent), wound dehiscence/infection (14%), and CSF leak/pseudomeningocele/hydrocephalus (9%). Tumors that involved the middle third of the sagittal plane (OR 6.97, 95% CI 1.5–32.0, p = 0.006) and presentation with cognitive changes (OR 20.7, 95% CI 2.3–182.7, p = 0.001) were significantly associated with complication occurrence on multivariate analysis. The median survival after the first reoperation was 11.5 years, and the 2-, 5-, and 10-year Kaplan-Meier survival rates were 91.0%, 68.8%, and 50.0%, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS

Reoperation for recurrent supratentorial non–skull base meningioma is associated with a high rate of complications. Patients with cognitive changes and tumors that overlap the middle third of the sagittal plane are at increased risk of complications. Nevertheless, excellent long-term survival can be achieved without perioperative mortality.
