Abstract

In spite of over 100 years of surgical experience with the brain tumor, meningioma, it continues in many cases to be a challenge. Although benign by nature, meningiomas may be difficult to resect and a small percentage may recur. Surgical intervention is the treatment of choice for complete abolition of the tumor. Following surgery, astute nursing care is required to promote physiological stability while monitoring for life-threatening complications.
