Endolymphatic sac tumor: staged endovascular-neurosurgical approach.


Endolymphatic sac tumors are rare, low-grade adenocarcinomas of the petrous bone. These tumors are highly vascularized and surgical removal is often challenging. We present a staged endovascular-neurosurgical approach consisting of stent-assisted angioplasty of the petrous carotid, selective endovascular embolization and surgical removal.
