A Novel Reconstructive Technique After Endoscopic Expanded Endonasal Approaches: Vascular Pedicle Nasoseptal Flap
Background: In patients with large dural defects of the anterior and ventral skull base after endonasal skull base surgery, there is a significant risk of a postoperative cerebrospinal fluid leak…
European position paper on endoscopic management of tumours of the nose, paranasal sinuses and skull base.
The present document is intended to be a state-of-the art review of neoplasia affecting the nose, paranasal sinuses and adjacent skull base to provide an evidence-based review of the diagnostic methods and to propose algorithms for the management of the disease.
ENDOSCOPIC RECONSTRUCTION OF THE CRANIAL BASE USING A PEDICLED NASOSEPTAL FLAP
The Hadad-Bassagasteguy flap (HBF), a neurovascular pedicled flap of the nasal septum mucoperiosteum and mucoperichondrium based on the nasoseptal artery, seems to be advantageous for the reconstruction of the cranial base after endonasal Cranial base surgery.
Transnasal Endoscopic Repair of Cerebrospinal Fluid Rhinorrhea: A Meta‐Analysis
The outcome after transnasal endoscopic repair of CSF leaks is ascertained and factors regarding the patient, CSF fistula, and treatment that may influence the results of the repair are identified.
Endoscopic endonasal resection of anterior cranial base meningiomas.
Cranial base meningiomas can be successfully managed via a purely endoscopic endonasal approach with acceptable morbidity and mortality rates.
Endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery: analysis of complications in the authors' initial 800 patients.
With the incremental acquisition of skills and experience, endoscopic endonasal approaches have an acceptable safety profile in select patients presenting with various skull base pathologies.
The Expanded Endonasal Approach: A Fully Endoscopic Transnasal Approach and Resection of the Odontoid Process: Technical Case Report
This is the first reported case of a completely endoscopic resection of the odontoid using a fully transnasal route and larger clinical series with long-term follow-up will be needed to determine the reproducibility and validation of any potential benefits.
Expanded endonasal approach: the rostrocaudal axis. Part I. Crista galli to the sella turcica.
Endoscopic, expanded endonasal approaches to rostral anterior skull base lesions are feasible and hold great potential for decreased morbidity.
Expanded endonasal approach: fully endoscopic, completely transnasal approach to the middle third of the clivus, petrous bone, middle cranial fossa, and infratemporal fossa.
The expanded endonasal approach is a feasible approach to the middle third of the clivus, petrous ICA, cavernous sinus, and medial infratemporal fossa in cases in which the lesion is located centrally, with neurovascular structures displaced laterally.
Biology, cytogenetics, and sensitivity to immunological effector cells of new head and neck squamous cell carcinoma lines.
Twenty-one head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cell lines were established from 89 fresh tumor specimens in order to study the biology of HNSCC lines, establish tumors in nude mice, and…
