Age and Outcome

Meningioma Age Outcome

Age was assessed with respect to outcome (GOS) by dividing into 3 groups (based on a review of 800 operative cases, personal series):

Group I:  Age less than 60

Group II:  Age between 61 and 70

Group III:  Age greater than 70 

The incidence of “normal” patients (GOS 5) goes down significantly from the Group I to II, then from II to III.   Young patient (<60) do very well from meningioma surgery, while older patients fared less optimally.  In short, age also does matter in how well patients fare following meningioma surgery.
