Hypothalamus Sparing Surgery Improves the Outcome of Patients with Severe Initial Hypothalamic Involvement of Childhood Craniopharyngioma: Results of the Prospective Multinational Trial KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007

Bogusz Agnieszka , Boekhoff Svenja , Warmuth-Metz Monika , Calaminus Gabriele , Eveslage Maria , Muller Hermann L

Context: Quality of survival (QoS) is frequently impaired in childhood-onset craniopharyngioma (CP) patients due to sequelae caused by the hypothalamic syndrome. The debate, whether primary hypothalamic involvement (HI) has apriori prognostic impact or surgical hypothalamic lesions (HL) determine outcome, is controversial. Accordingly, we analyzed, whether CP patients at high risk for hypothalamic obesity due to primary HI of anterior and posterior hypothalamic structures bene...

Craniopharyngiomas presenting as incidentalomas: results of KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007

Boekhoff Svenja , Bison Brigitte , Eveslage Maria , Sowithayasakul Panjarat , Muller Hermann L. ,

Purpose: Childhood-onset craniopharyngiomas (CP) are diagnosed due to clinical symptoms (symCP) or incidentally (incCP). We investigated clinical manifestations and outcome in incCPs and symCPs.Methods: IncCP were discovered in 4 (3m/1f) and symCP in 214 (101m/113f) CP recruited 2007–2014 in KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007. Age, sex, height, body mass index (BMI), tumor volume, degree of resection, pre- and postsurgical hypothalamic involveme...

Peng Junxiang , Boekhoff Svenja , Eveslage Maria , Bison Brigitte , Sowithayasakul Panjarat , Muller Hermann L. ,

Background: Severe obesity and tumor relapse/progression have impact on long-term prognosis in pediatric brain tumor patients.Methods: In a cross-sectional study, we analyzed nuchal skinfold thickness (NST) on magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI) follow-up monitoring as a parameter for assessment of nuchal adipose tissue in 177 brain tumor patients (40 World Health Organization (WHO) grade 1–2 brain tumor; 31 grade 3&#1...

Craniopharyngiomas diagnosed as incidentalomas - Results of KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007

Boekhoff Svenja , Bison Brigitte , Eveslage Maria , Sowithayasakul Panjarat , Beckhaus Julia , Friedrich Carsten , L. Müller Hermann

Purpose: Childhood-onset craniopharyngiomas (CP) are diagnosed due to clinical symptoms (symCP) or incidentally (incCP). In childhood-onset CP, studies on history before CP diagnosis have revealed symptoms and complaints related to CP, which were documented in CP patients’ records with a median duration of 5 months prior to CP diagnosis. We investigated clinical manifestations and outcome in incCPs and symCPs.Methods:</stro...

Legal degree of disability in childhood-craniopharyngioma survivors during long-term follow-up: Results of the HIT-ENDO study

Boekhoff Svenja , Eveslage Maria , Beckhaus Julia , Friedrich Carsten , L. Müller Hermann

Background: Cranioparyngiomas are rare low-grade embryonic malformational tumors of the sellar/parasellar region. The prognosis after diagnosis during childood and adolescence is influenced by endocrine and hypothalamic long-term sequelae. A legal status of the degree of disability (GdB), according to the German Social Code Book V that is worthy of support provides financial means for psychosocial rehabilitation and participation of craniopharyngioma survivors...

Eating Behavior and Oxytocin in Childhood-onset Craniopharyngioma Patients: An Exploratory Study

Daubenbüchel Anna M. , Özyurt Jale , Warmuth-Metz Monika , Eveslage Maria , Müller Hermann L.

Background: Childhood-onset craniopharyngioma patients (CP) often suffer from tumor or treatment-related hypothalamic lesions (HL). These lesions may alter production of oxytocin, which plays a major role in the regulation of eating behavior and body composition.Objective: In CP with different degrees HL, we investigated associations between HL, eating behavior/eating attitudes, and oxytocin saliva concentrations (OSC).<...

Cerebral infarction in childhood-onset craniopharyngioma patients: results of KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007

Boekhoff Svenja , Bison Brigitte , Genzel Daniela , Eveslage Maria , Otte Anna , Friedrich Carsten , Flitsch Jorg , Muller Hermann L. ,

Background: Cerebral infarction (CI) is a known vascular complication following treatment of suprasellar tumors. Risk factors for CI, incidence rate, and long-term prognosis are unknown for patients with childhood-onset craniopharyngioma (CP).Methods: MRI of 244 CP patients, recruited between 2007 and 2019 in KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007, were reviewed for CI. Risk factors for CI and outcome after CI were analyzed.<p class=...

Cerebral infarction in childhood-onset craniopharyngioma patients: results of KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007

Boekhoff Svenja , Bison Brigitte , Genzel Daniela , Eveslage Maria , Friedrich Carsten , Flitsch Jörg , Müller Hermann L.

Background: Cerebral infarction (CI) is a known vascular complication following treatment of suprasellar tumors. The purpose of our study was to determine the incidence of cerebral infarction (CI) in a cohort of 244 German childhood-onset craniopharyngioma (CP) patients recruited between 2007 and 2019 with a high degree of completeness in the prospective, randomized trial KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007 (Clinical Trial No. NCT01272622). Up to now, risk factors for CI, i...

Background: Craniopharyngioma is an embryonic tumor of low-grade malignancy. Children and adolescents with this diagnosis are analyzed concerning quality of life (QoL) and (progression-free) survival within the project KRANIOPHARYNGEOM 2007.Methods: The prospective, multi-center project consists of a randomized, unblinded substudy with adaptive design and an observational study. The randomized substudy for incompletely r...
