Fernando López, Vanessa Suárez, María Costales, Carlos Suárez, José L Llorente
BACKGROUND: The management of juvenile angiofibroma (JA) has changed during the last decades but it still continues to be a challenge. The objective of this study was to review the used treatment and our outcomes. METHODS: From 1992 to 2010, 48 cases of JA were treated at our department. Charts were reviewed for standard demographic, tumour size and location, vascular supply and results of embolization, surgical approach, operative results, adjuvant therapies, recurrence and postoperative follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas (JNAs) with significant skull base involvement and intracranial extension are challenging tumors. We evaluated our experience in the treatment of extensive JNAs through resection followed by radiosurgery. METHODS: From 1999 to 2007, 10 advanced JNAs (Andrews grade IV) were treated by primary surgical resection followed by gamma knife radiosurgery of residual tumor. Tumor control and treatment morbidity were evaluated...

The management of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) has changed during the last decades but it still continues to be a challenge for the multidisciplinary head and neck surgical team. The aim of this study was to review the used treatment approach and outcome of JNA in a single institution series of 27 patients diagnosed and treated during the years 1970-2009. All patients were male, with the median age of 17 years (range 11-33 years). Surgery was used as the primary treatment in every case. Surgical approaches varied, transpalatal approach (N = 14) being the most common approach used in this series...

OBJECTIVE: Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas involving the cranial base and intracranial compartment are challenging tumors. We reviewed our experience of these tumors and analyzed the efficacy of a multimodality management. METHODS: Between 1981 and 2000, 15 extensive juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas (Fisch Grade III or IV) were treated at our institution. The mean age of the patients was 14.5 years, and the mean interval between the first symptom and diagnosis was 12...

Radiosurgery has been rarely applied for juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) and cumulative reports are lacking. The authors report a case of successful treatment of recurred JNA with gamma knife surgery (GKS). A 48-yr-old man was presented with right visual acuity deterioration and brain magnetic resonance images (MRI) disclosed a 3 cm-sized intraorbital mass in the right orbit. He underwent a right fronto-temporal craniotomy and the mass was subtotally removed to preserve visual function. Histological diagnosis confirmed JNA in typical nature...

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Experience with the management of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) by gamma knife radiosurgery is limited. We report control of the disease in two patients with advanced-stage JNA treated with primary resection followed by gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery of residual disease. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: An 18-year-old man presented with chronic sinusitis, worsening headaches, diplopia, and left-sided facial numbness. A second patient, a 19-year-old man, presented with recurrent epistaxis and nasal congestion...

According to international protocols, radiotherapy remains a part of the treatment of several pediatric ear, nose and throat tumours. The role of radiation therapy in the treatment of rhabdomyosarcomas, non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, nasopharyngeal carcinomas, osteosarcomas and juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas is reviewed. The main complications of this type of treatment in children, as well as their management, are described. Finally, we discuss how several technical advances (increased fractionation of the dose, various types of stereotactic radiotherapy, use of tridimensional treatment planning systems) help the radiation oncologist to minimize the toxicity of the treatment for healthy tissues...
