INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery (EETS) is increasingly applied to treat tuberculum sellae meningiomas. However, if the tumor adheres firmly to the optic nerve, dissection of the interface between both structures should be prudent to preserve visual function. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether tumor adhesion to the optic nerve can be predicted preoperatively by fast imaging with steady-state acquisition (FIESTA). METHODS: Twenty-two patients with tuberculum sellae meningioma treated with EETS were retrospectively identified...

OBJECTIVE In tuberculum sellae meningioma (TSM) surgery, endonasal approaches are claimed to have a superior visual outcome compared with transcranial approaches. The authors question whether this is always true and analyze their series of cases of endoscope-assisted transcranial TSM surgery with special regard to the postoperative visual outcome in order to explore this issue. METHODS All surgical procedures for TSM performed between 2003 and 2015 in the Department of Neurosurgery, University Medicine Greifswald, were retrospectively analyzed...

OBJECTIVE Planum sphenoidale (PS) and tuberculum sellae (TS) meningiomas cause visual symptoms due to compression of the optic chiasm. The treatment of choice is surgical removal with the goal of improving vision and achieving complete tumor removal. Two options exist to remove these tumors: the transcranial approach (TCA) and the endonasal endoscopic approach (EEA). Significant controversy exists regarding which approach provides the best results and whether there is a subset of patients for whom an EEA may be more suitable...

Tuberculum sella and planum sphenoidale meningiomas pose a management challenge given their intimate relationship to surrounding critical neurovascular structures. The development and advancement of expanded endoscopic transnasal surgery has provided a good surgical option that in well-selected cases, may provide several advantages over a transcranial route. These include early devascularization, complete dura and bone removal, elimination of brain retraction and enhanced visualization of the optic apparatus perforating vessels...

Seong-Cheol Park, Sang Hyung Lee
Preservation of the optic nerves is an important issue in the resection of tuberculum sellae meningiomas. We report the case of a patient whose optic nerve was penetrated by a tuberculum sellae meningioma. During surgery, a bulging tumor was found to penetrate the right optic nerve. The tumor was gross totally removed, including tumors bulging through the optic nerve. Two trunks of the split optic nerve were preserved. The penetrated shape of the optic nerve may lead to misjudgment and its damage. Divided trunks of optic nerves are difficult to recognize and may be confused for the tumor capsule, because they may be thinned and seem to contain tumors...

AIM: Reconstruction technique advances have created renewed enthusiasm for the expanded endonasal approach (EEA). However, as with any new technique, early experiences inevitably lead to more selective use of these techniques. We reviewed our experience of the expanded endonasal endoscopic approach for skull base meningiomas and place it in context of the literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed retrospective review of all endonasal cases performed at our center for histologically proven meningioma...

INTRODUCTION: The large increase in the number of transnasal endoscopic skull base surgeries is a consequence of greater knowledge of the anatomic region, the development of specific materials and instruments, and especially the use of the nasoseptal flap as a barrier between the sinus tract (contaminated cavity) and the subarachnoid space (sterile area), reducing the high risk of contamination. OBJECTIVE: To assess the otorhinolaryngologic complications in patients undergoing endoscopic surgery of the skull base, in which a nasoseptal flap was used...

OBJECTIVE Microsurgical resection of perisellar meningiomas has remained the gold standard for treatment, with extended endoscopic endonasal surgery emerging as a viable alternative. Historical microsurgical series do not distinguish based on tumor anatomy, but are being used as a comparison against endonasal surgery. In this study, the authors retrospectively reviewed and compared the anatomy of perisellar meningiomas seen at their institution. The tumors were separated into 2 groups based on whether they would be appropriate for endoscopic resection, and the authors compared the surgical outcomes...

Optic canal invasion by tuberculum sellae meningiomas (TSMs) has been reported, but the characteristics of invasion remain unclear. This study was performed to clarify the incidence and characteristics of optic canal invasion by TSM and to determine whether optic canal invasion could be predicted preoperatively by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Between February 2002 and August 2014, 31 patients with TSM underwent tumor resection in our institute. In all cases, the optic canal was explored to identify any tumor invasion...
