Background: Meningiomas recur with a rate of 10–32% at 10 years. Several features influence the risk of recurrence. Objective: To define the pathological and surgical features at risk of multicentric-diffuse versus local–peripheral recurrence. Methods: Thirty-three patients operated on for intracranial meningiomas who experienced multicentric-diffuse recurrence were retrospectively analyzed. The data of these patients were compared to those of 50 patients who experienced local–peripheral recurrence. The analyzed factors included age and sex, tumor location and shape, brain-tumor interface, entity of resection, WHO grade, Ki67 MIB1, progesterone receptor (PR) expression, number of reoperations, progression of WHO grade, and outcome. Results: Meningiomas which recurred in multicentric-diffuse pattern showed at initial surgery a significantly higher rate of flat-shaped tumors (p =.0008) and of cases with Ki67 Li ≥ 4% (p =.037) than those which recurred in localized-peripheral pattern, whereas other factors did not significantly differ. Among patients with multicentric-diffuse recurrences, 25 underwent one to three reoperations; 17 among them (66%) are alive with local tumor control or slow progression 2–25 years after the initial surgery versus only 2 out of 8 who did not undergo surgery. Conclusions: Flat-shaped meningiomas and those with Ki67 Li ≥ 4% are at higher risk of multicentric-diffuse recurrence. Multiple reoperations over a period of several years may obtain rather long survivals in selected patients with prevalent intradural, not anaplastic tumors and not too extensive dural infiltration.

Abstract

Background: Meningiomas recur with a rate of 10–32% at 10 years. Several features influence the risk of recurrence. Objective: To define the pathological and surgical features at risk of multicentric-diffuse versus local–peripheral recurrence. Methods: Thirty-three patients operated on for intracranial meningiomas who experienced multicentric-diffuse recurrence were retrospectively analyzed. The data of these patients were compared to those of 50 patients who experienced local–peripheral recurrence. The analyzed factors included age and sex, tumor location and shape, brain-tumor interface, entity of resection, WHO grade, Ki67 MIB1, progesterone receptor (PR) expression, number of reoperations, progression of WHO grade, and outcome. Results: Meningiomas which recurred in multicentric-diffuse pattern showed at initial surgery a significantly higher rate of flat-shaped tumors (p =.0008) and of cases with Ki67 Li ≥ 4% (p =.037) than those which recurred in localized-peripheral pattern, whereas other factors did not significantly differ. Among patients with multicentric-diffuse recurrences, 25 underwent one to three reoperations; 17 among them (66%) are alive with local tumor control or slow progression 2–25 years after the initial surgery versus only 2 out of 8 who did not undergo surgery. Conclusions: Flat-shaped meningiomas and those with Ki67 Li ≥ 4% are at higher risk of multicentric-diffuse recurrence. Multiple reoperations over a period of several years may obtain rather long survivals in selected patients with prevalent intradural, not anaplastic tumors and not too extensive dural infiltration.
