Infratentorial ependymomas--a study of the centre in Katowice.

Mandera M, Makarska J, Sobol G, Musioł K - Childs Nerv Syst (2015)

Bottom Line: The study was conducted on a group of 19 patients, 13 boys and 6 girls aged 3 months to 16 years, with infratentorial ependymoma treated at the Department of Paediatric Neurosurgery of the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice from January 2000 until December 2008.There has been no statistically significant influence of the histopathological type of ependymoma on the result of treatment.The tendency to report better results of treatment of non-anaplastic ependymoma seems to derive from a statistically higher frequency of total removal of tumours of this type.

ABSTRACT
The aim of the study was to assess the correlation of the results of the treatment of infratentorial ependymomas with the degree of resection and histopathological diagnosis. The study was conducted on a group of 19 patients, 13 boys and 6 girls aged 3 months to 16 years, with infratentorial ependymoma treated at the Department of Paediatric Neurosurgery of the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice from January 2000 until December 2008. The most significant factor having an impact on overall survival and progression-free survival was totality of tumour resection. There has been no statistically significant influence of the histopathological type of ependymoma on the result of treatment. The tendency to report better results of treatment of non-anaplastic ependymoma seems to derive from a statistically higher frequency of total removal of tumours of this type.

Mentions: It has been noted that the treatment is more effective in the case of ependymoma grade II. Only one patient with ependymoma grade II died, while there were seven deaths in the group of anaplastic ependymoma. On the other hand, however, the total tumour resection was obtained in seven of eight patients with ependymoma, while in the group of anaplastic ependymoma, only in 4 of 11 cases. Better results of the treatment of non-anaplastic ependymoma seem to derive from the fact that such ependymoma was more frequently completely removed (Fig. 7).Fig. 7
