He’s not out of the woods yet, but many prayers were answered for the Kuric family on Thursday when Kyle Kuric’s surgery in Barcelona, Spain reportedly went “very well”.
UofL’s Kenny Klein released a statement on Thursday afternoon regarding Kuric’s condition:
“Kyle Kuric’s family reports that his surgery in Barcelona, Spain today has been completed and went very well. The next few days are important and he will be monitored closely. The family sincerely appreciates all of the support they have received.”
Kuric went to a Barcelona hospital for a migraine headache when the tumor was discovered. Kyle is in Barcelona playing for the Spanish Gran Canaria club.
The tumor is described as a Meningioma. Meningiomas are a diverse set of tumors arising from the meninges, the membranous layers surrounding the central nervous system. They arise from the arachnoid “cap” cells of the arachnoid villi in the meninges. These tumors usually are benign in nature; however, a small percentage are malignant.
If Kuric’s tumor was not malignant that is the first good news. Benign tumors come in different stages and low grades typically do not re-occur. Other elevated stages can return and be problematic over the course of a person’s life. Let’s hope that Kyle’s Meningioma is non-recurrent and benign.
