Complex tumors OF the glomus jugulare present a surgical challenge because of their difficult location, extreme vascularity, and involvement with multiple cranial nerves. Modern microneurosurgical and cranial base techniques have enabled safe total removal of these complicated tumors. We describe a one-stage transjugular posterior infratemporal fossa approach for radical resection of glomus jugulare tumors located around the jugular foramen, the lower clivus, and the high cervical region from… CONTINUE READING
