Despite variations of the transcondylar approach or intradural
approach combined with an extradural approach have been used, complete tumor resection was achieved only in 9 (28.
, extraaxial tumor with a polar cyst.
Imaging with computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) identified an extratemporal tumor in 128 patients (58%), an intratemporal lesion in 55 patients (25%), and an intradural
mass in 38 (17%).
Sagittal sectioning of the spine revealed an intradural
growth causing segmental deformity of the lumbosacral spinal cord.
Potential causes have included anaesthetic techniques such as intradural
anaesthesia, (2) epidural technique, lumbar plexus blocks, (3) or ilioinguinal nerve blocks.
Also, serotonin-induced plasma extravasation induced was observed in rats not only in the intradural
area but also in the inner ear; a potential peripheral mechanism was reported by this study .
TGN root involvement in posterior fossa would present with intradural
tumors, and the gasserian ganglion involvement in middle cranial fossa would present with extra dural mass apart from symptoms of continuous facial pain, facial paresthesia, numbness, and so forth.
The investigators' approach entailed excessive removal of the lamina and removal of the disc material by an intradural
spinal metastasis to the cauda equina in renal cell carcinoma: a case report and review of the literature.
14) Neurological compression most commonly occurs in the thoracic spine and arises as a result of cord compression from the tumour, retropulsion from pathological vertebral body fracture fragments, or intradural
microsurgery and extradural gamma knife surgery for hypoglossal Schwannoma: case report and review of the literature.
1,2 They are commonly Intradural
, extramedullary, accounting for approximately two-thirds of all spinal cord tumors in adults.
