Comprehensive Treatment For Brain Meningiomas And Their Recurrences Using Proton Therapy

Jamshidjon Alimov, Rustamjon Alimov


This article presents results of using proton therapy after operation of patient with brain meningioma. After operation brain meningiomas is known to not rarely recur due to certain localization and growth of tumor into main cerebral vessels, nerves and other main brain structures. This creates certain difficulties in operative access and surgical intervention, i.e. tumor resection. Proton therapy sharply reduces complications and improves the quality of life of patients.
