Meningioma Embolization: Quantitative Insights and Implications for Minimally Invasive Surgery

Neurosurgeon Benjamin I. Rapoport, MD, PhD, presents initial results from a new project exploring the use of embolization to treat brain tumors, particularly meningiomas. Dr. Rapoport covers what happens when a meningioma is embolized, what determines the efficacy of tumor embolization, the experience so far at Mount Sinai, and implications for other minimally invasive surgical approaches to treat brain tumors.
