Endoscopic skull base surgery

Endoscopic skull base surgery

Endoscopic surgery for the skull base where ENT surgeon works together with a neurosurgeon, provides minimally invasive access.

More recently, further specialization combined with advanced training and techniques have allowed the paranasal sinuses to be a relatively low-morbidity approach to selected tumors even inside the skull or brain. This can be divided into:

  • approaches to the anterior cranial fossa
  • approaches to the mid cranial fossa

  • access to the infratemporal fossa (incl. pterygopalatine fissure)
  • access to the sella turcica
  • orbital access
  • optic nerve access
