Post-operative ultrasound examinations through a suboccipital craniectomy have been performed on 10 children operated on because of a posterior fossa tumor. Four of those tumors were medulloblastomas 3 were astrocytomas, 2 were angioblastomas and one was an ependymoma. The authors suggest that this new technique - suboccipital ultrasound examination - is suitable for monitoring the post-operative state of posterior fossa tumors and allows an early recognition of recurrence.
