OBJECTIVE: Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) outcomes for anterior clinoid process (ACP) meningiomas have not been specifically reported within any meningioma series. We present the initial and largest series in the literature that describes the presenting features, radiosurgery parameters, and radiologic and long-term clinical outcomes for 61 patients with ACP meningiomas treated with GKRS.
