Meningiomas of the Craniovertebral Junction

Meningiomas are tumors originating from the meninges of the brain and spine that are typically benign. Mass-effect and traction of nearby structures resulting in neurological sequelae often predicates surgical resection. Vital structures are unavoidably encountered en route to craniocervical junction meningiomas, posing a significant surgical challenge. The clinical presentation varies based on neoplasm size and location. Resection techniques also vary based on individual anatomy and the required exposure.
