OBJECTIVE: To identify clinico-radiologic factors associated with incomplete anterior cranial fossa (ACF) meningioma resection via an endoscopic endonasal approach. METHOD: Patients undergoing endoscopic endonasal resection of an ACF meningioma were retrospectively accrued from two university-affiliated centers. Demographic profiles and radiologic findings, including tumor dimensions and morphology, anatomic location, and vascular involvement, were stratified according to the extent of resection...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic endonasal approaches, when appropriate, allow a less invasive method to remove anterior skull base cancer than traditional external transfacial/craniofacial approaches. The resultant skull base defect can be significantly large, potentially extending from the posterior table of the frontal sinus to the tuberculum sellae in the sagittal plane, and from one lamina papyracea to the other in the coronal plane. However, frontal lobe herniation after such expanded endoscopic resection has been considered more of a theoretical than a practical occurrence...

OBJECTIVE Reports about endoscopic endonasal surgery for skull base tumors involving the lateral part of petrous apex remain scarce. The authors present their experience with the endoscopic transsphenoidal anterior petrosal (ETAP) approach through the retrocarotid space for tumors involving the internal auditory canal, jugular fossa, and cavernous sinus. METHODS The authors performed the ETAP approach in 10 patients with 11 tumors (bilateral in 1 patient) that extensively occupied the lateral part of petrous apex, e...
