The importance of preoperative embolisation in intracranial meningiomas has caught the eyes of several researchers and authors. Preoperative embolisation has been shown by several studies and authors to have several benefits in managing meningiomas by craniotomy. Some of the benefits include a reduction in blood loss, reduced surgical complications and improved outcome. Even though the procedure is said to have several benefits, its application as a standard practice is limited because of several reasons. One of the reasons for the limiting its application as a standard practice is lack of randomized clinical trials on its usefulness. As such, a conclusion on its usefulness in managing meningioma cannot be made. Preoperative embolisation may not be indicated for every patient with meningioma.
