BACKGROUND: We describe a rare case of a sphenoid sinus myxoma that was resected via an endoscopic endonasal skull base approach. We review the literature regarding these rare tumors of the paranasal sinuses. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 72 year old female was diagnosed with an incidental sphenoid sinus tumor and left sphenoid wing meningioma during work-up for left sided proptosis and diplopia. Biopsies of the sphenoid wing and sphenoid sinus tumors were obtained. After undergoing surgical resection of the meningioma, the patient then underwent definitive resection of the sphenoid sinus myxoma via endoscopic endonasal skull base approach...

OBJECTIVE In the past decade, the role of the endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) has relevantly evolved for skull base tumors. In this study, the authors review their surgical experience with using an EEA in the treatment of clival chordomas, which are deep and infiltrative skull base lesions, and they highlight the advantages and limitations of this ventral approach. METHODS All consecutive cases of chordoma treated with an EEA between 1998 and 2015 at a single institution are included in this study. Preoperative assessment consisted of neuroimaging (MRI and CT with angiography sequences) and endocrinological, neurological, and ophthalmological evaluations, which were repeated 3 months after surgery and annually thereafter...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Myxoid liposarcoma is not an uncommon form of sarcoma. However, it usually affects the lower extremity long bones. Scapular involvement is extremely rare, as is a metastasis to the parasellar region. We present a case of liposarcoma of the skull base originating in the scapular region and metastasizing to the sellar and parasellar regions and provide a review of the pertinent literature. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 43-year-old female patient diagnosed with left scapular myxoid liposarcoma was treated with surgical resection...

BACKGROUND: Successful endoscopic endonasal surgery for the resection of skull base tumors is reliant on preoperative imaging to delineate pathology from the surrounding anatomy. The increased signal-to-noise ratio afforded by 7T MRI can be used to increase spatial and contrast resolution, which may lend itself to improved imaging of skull base. In this study, we apply a 7T imaging protocol to patients with skull base tumors and compare the images to clinical standard of care. METHODS: Images were acquired at 7T on 11 patients with skull base lesions...

OBJECTIVES: To help surgeons locating anatomic landmarks when performing endoscopic endonasal transcribriform approach to anterior skull base. METHODS: High-resolution axial computed tomography (CT) images at thickness of 0.6 mm, and reconstructed 0.41-mm thick gapless sagittal and coronal CT images were taken from 123 subjects. Using mimics software, first located elementary points and line: nasal spine, midpoint of posterior hard palate and the line between them; then located measured points right/left posterior and anterior points; measured distances between measured points and from measured points to nasal spine and angles between lines connecting measured points to nasal spine and the basic line...

Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a locally aggressive benign tumour which has propensity to erode the skull base. The tumour spreads along the pathways of least resistance and is in close proximity to the extracranial part of trigeminal nerve. Advancements in expanded approaches for endoscopic excision of tumours in infratemporal fossa and pterygopalatine fossa increase the vulnerability for the trigeminocardiac reflex. The manipulation of nerve and its branches during tumour dissection can lead to sensory stimulation and thus inciting the reflex...

Objectives The nasoseptal flap (NSF) has become the workhorse for reconstruction in endoscopic endonasal skull-base surgery. The NSF, though useful in reconstruction, may lead to significant donor site morbidity. Published techniques to reduce the donor site morbidity, free mucosal grafts, and septal rotational flaps have shown to reduce crusting and remucosalization times. We present a novel technique utilizing posterior septal mucosa as a free mucosal graft for reconstruction of the anterior septal donor site...

Objectives Bilateral anterior skull base (ASB) defects following endoscopic endonasal tumor resection are most commonly repaired utilizing multilayered reconstruction with a vascularized mucosal flap. Single-layer closure of large ASB defects has been described in the literature but this technique has yet to gain a widespread use. We report our experience with a series of patients who underwent reconstruction of large ASB defects using a single-layer intradural graft, without nasoseptal flaps. We also compared the use of acellular dermal matrix (AlloDerm, LifeCell, Branchburg, New Jersey, United States) or collagen matrix xenograft (Duramatrix, Stryker, Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States) as the graft biomaterial...

Combined transcranial and endoscopic endonasal approaches remain useful in the treatment of ventral skull base malignancies. The extended bifrontal transbasal approach provides wide access to the anterior ventral skull base and paranasal sinuses without transfacial incisions. In more extensive lesions, the bifrontal transbasal approach can then be combined with an endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) from below. This article reviews the indications, surgical technique, and operative nuances of combined transbasal and EEA (cranionasal) approaches for the surgical management of ventral skull base malignancies...

REVIEW
Adam J Folbe, Peter F Svider, James K Liu, Jean Anderson Eloy
Surgical management of clival lesions presents numerous therapeutic challenges because of the close proximity of surrounding critical structures. With a detailed understanding of the endoscopic endonasal approach and relevant considerations, appropriate lesions can be removed in a safe and minimally invasive manner. Use of this technique as a primary approach represents the standard of care for many lesions at leading skull base centers, although adjunct techniques may be necessary in extensive lesions and those with significant lateral extension...

OBJECTIVE: Delayed post-traumatic mucoceles are rare. We describe the surgical treatment of a post-traumatic ethmoidal mucocele with intra-orbital extension. METHOD: A uninostril endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) was performed. The access was contralateral to the lesion to provide a wider lateral view. After a large sphenoid and ethmoid sinuses opening, the collection was drained and the optic nerve precociously identified. The orbital roof was eroded and the frontal dura mater directly visible...

BACKGROUND: An extended endoscopic endonasal approach is increasingly used in surgical treatment of space-occupying skull base lesions. The international literature reports only 20 cases of surgical treatment for fibrous dysplasia (PD) of the skull base using the endoscopic endonasal approach. We present our experience with the endoscopic endonasal approach in surgical treatment for giant fibrous dysplasia of the skull base, spreading to the right orbital cavity and nasopharynx. CLINICAL CASE: A 26-year-old male patient presented with cranial pain, Vth nerve dysfunction on the right, right keratopathy...

BACKGROUND: A major challenge during endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery is adequate intraoperative hemostasis. The Aquamantys® is a relatively new bipolar sealing device which uses radiofrequency energy and saline. This promotes hemostasis while decreasing charring and thermal spread. In this paper, we describe our experience with the Aquamantys® Mini EVS 3.4 Epidural Vein Sealer Bipolar Electrocautery System (Medtronic Advanced Energy, Portsmouth, NH, USA) during endoscopic surgery for tumors of the skull base with particular attention to ergonomic benefits and technical nuances...

PURPOSE: Although neuroradiologists and skull base neurosurgeons are aware of the existence of veins within the clivus, such vessels have seldom been described in the literature. The aim of the present study is to elucidate the detailed venous structure of the clivus. METHODS: Computed tomography digital subtraction venography (CT-DSV) images of 50 unruptured aneurysm cases were examined retrospectively. RESULTS: Eighteen emissary veins were identified in 14 (28...

Oncogenic osteomalacia (OO) is an uncommon but treatable cause of osteomalacia related to tumor production of FGF23, usually caused by benign mesenchymal neoplasms. Paranasal sinus glomangiomas are a rare cause of OO, with only one previously reported case. Here we describe a second case (first reported in English) of paranasal sinus glomangioma-induced osteomalacia in a 42-year-old man. He presented with weakness and multiple spontaneous fractures, and was found to have an ethmoid sinus glomangioma with intracranial extension...
