Short- and mediumterm results indicate that this is a safe and effective strategy. Long-term results are yet to be determined. Total Removal of Parasagittal Meningiomas Involving the Superior Sagittal Sinus with Sinus Repair Marc P. Sindou, P. Hallacq, and Jorge E. Alvernia The presented case illustrates the difficulties of surgical decision making.

Necmettin Pamir, Selcuk Peker, and Koray Özduman This patient’s neurologic examination showed mild hemiparesis, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a left-sided parasagittal meningioma located in the middle third. Magnetic resonance venography showed partial occlusion or narrowing of the superior sagittal sinus (SSS). Our recommendation for this patient is surgical resection of the tumor outside the sinus and subsequent radiosurgery for the residual portion that invades the sinus.

Finally, the sphenoid sinus is filled with surgical glue (Tisseel, Duraseal, or both) to reduce the dead spaces and hold the reconstruction material in place.
