Surgical treatment of large vestibular schwannomas in patients with neurofibromatosis type 2: outcomes on facial nerve function and hearing preservation
Surgical treatment of vestibular schwannoma (VS) in patients with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) along with functional preservation of cranial nerves is challenging. The aim of this study was toExpand
Continuous dural suturing for closure of grade 3 leaks after tumor removal via an endoscopic endonasal approach
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage is a major complication after extended endonasal transsphenoidal surgery (EETSS), which is commonly used in the treatment of anterior skull base tumors. DuralExpand
Diagnosis of Invasive Non-functional Pituitary Adenomas by Serum Extracellular Vesicles.
he invasiveness evaluation of non-functional pituitary adenoma (NFPAs) is crucial for the prediction of the malignant potential and for making surgical plans of NFPAs. Current invasiveness evaluationExpand
Evolution of transmaxillary approach to tumors in pterygopalatine fossa and infratemporal fossa: anatomic simulation and clinical practice
