After the aperture of the cranial box, the neurosurgeon starts by removing the part of the meninges invested by the meningioma then remove the tumor that compresses the brain. The meningioma has not affected the cortical part, only a few arteries and veins have been « requisitionned » by the tumor here is why its designation of « agressive meningioma ». This sort of tumor appear more frequently on the menopaused patient because of the hormonal disturbances. Here, trepanning. Aperture of the flange (part of the cranial box /bone to be removed).
