The significance of preoperative hematological inflammatory markers in patients with meningiomas.

Clin Neurol Neurosurg; 182: 1-4, 2019 Jul.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-31048144

OBJECTIVE:

This study was designed to evaluate whether preoperative hematological inflammatory markers would be useful in predicting the pathological grade of meningiomas.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

A retrospective study of 944 patients with newly diagnosed meningioma was conducted. Preoperative blood results were obtained, including platelet, leukocyte, neutrophil, lymphocyte, and monocyte counts, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR), albumin level, globulin level, and albumin-to-globulin ratio (AGR). Logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the independent predictive factors for high-grade meningiomas.

RESULTS:

Univariate logistic regression analysis indicated that the hematological inflammatory markers associated with tumor grade were leukocyte, neutrophil, and monocyte counts and the LMR (P < 0.05 for all). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that high leukocyte count (P = 0.007) and low LMR (P = 0.041) were independent predictive factors for high-grade meningiomas.

CONCLUSIONS:

Preoperative high leukocyte count and low LMR were independent predictive factors of high-grade meningiomas, suggesting that leukocyte count and LMR could be useful in the assessment of the grade of meningiomas.
