Background/Objective Our institution previously showed that patients experience significant postoperative sinonasal symptoms for the first few months after endoscopic transnasal transsphenoidal skull base surgery (eTNTS). Since our initial study we have modified our technique, discontinuing routine resection of the middle turbinate, maxillary antrostomies,(More)
Objectives To identify sinuses demonstrating postoperative radiographic mucosal thickening after endoscopic exposure of the cranial base through the transsphenoidal corridor. Design Retrospective review. Setting University-based medical center. Participants Patients undergoing endoscopic transnasal transsphenoidal approaches to the skull base who had both(More)
OBJECT As tumors enlarge, they generally grow along paths of least resistance. For pituitary macroadenomas, extrasellar extension into the suprasellar region, cavernous sinus, or sphenoid sinus may occur. The sphenoid sinus is known to have a variable anatomical configuration, and the authors hypothesize that certain anatomical factors may resist tumor(More)
Objectives/Hypothesis A comprehensive review of the literature of clival metastases and presentation of two additional cases. Study Design Literature review and report of two cases. Methods A literature review of the MEDLINE database (1950 to January 19, 2013) was performed to identify all cases of patients with metastatic disease to the clivus.(More)
Objectives To present a critical evaluation of our experience using an expanded endoscopic endonasal approach (EEEA) to clival lesions and evaluate, based on the location of residual tumor, what the anatomic limitations to the approach are. Design A retrospective review of all endoscopic endonasal operations performed at our institution identified 19(More)
Background An ectopic pituitary adenoma presenting as a clival or sphenoid mass is a rare clinical occurrence that may mislead the clinician and result in unnecessary interventions or potential medicolegal consequences. Here, we present one of the largest multi-institutional case series and review the literature with an emphasis on radiological findings and(More)
Objectives Bilateral anterior skull base (ASB) defects following endoscopic endonasal tumor resection are most commonly repaired utilizing multilayered reconstruction with a vascularized mucosal flap. Single-layer closure of large ASB defects has been described in the literature but this technique has yet to gain a widespread use. We report our experience(More)

OBJECTIVES Allergic and nonallergic rhinitis are very common disease for children, however, little is known about their natural courses in the general population. The purpose is to evaluate the natural course of allergic and nonallergic rhinitis in children. METHODS We analyzed data from Snoring Child Cohort of 178 children (107 boys and 71 girls). All(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose is to provide detailed estimates of population-based incidences of head and neck cancers (HNCs) between 1999 and 2012 in South Korea and to evaluate trends. METHODS Data was reviewed from the Korea National Cancer Incidence Database regarding the incidence of HNCs between 1999 and 2012. Locations that were surveyed included lip,(More)
