TY - JOUR. T1 - The pericranial flap for reconstruction of anterior skull base defects. AU - Price, John C.. AU - Loury, Mark. AU - Carson, Benjamin. AU - Johns, Michael E.. PY - 1988/11. Y1 - 1988/11. N2 - In 1981, the senior author first reported the use of the pericranial flap for support of the brain following resection of the anterior skull base. Since the initial report, considerable experience has been gained with this flap. It is currently deployed via a bifrontal craniotomy and is placed primarily as a support beneath the frontal lobes. The pericranial flap may also be used to repair dural laceration and defects. The sinonasal surface is routinely grafted with split-thickness skin or dermis. This technique provides an excellent barrier between the sinonasal cavity and the cerebrospinal fluid, establishing a tough, fibrous platform. Herniation of intracranial contents has not occurred. One major complication has been reported in which radiation necrosis occurred during postoperative ...

Current standard of care for complex head, neck and skull base surgery require navigation systems that allow instruments to be tracked optically or electromagnetically while registered to a patients pre-operative X-ray computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance image (MRI). However, conventionally, the CT/MRI data is not registered with video endoscopy. Augmentation of endoscopic video by preoperative data can facilitate navigation around critical structures and robust target resection. The work presented here describes evaluation of a high definition (HD) video-overlay system for endonasal endoscopic skull base surgery. We adopt a modular design that can be extended for other video augmentation applications. The system supports fast automatic camera calibration, comparable in re-projection errors to standard camera calibration tools, while performing within appropriate run time for clinical use. Phantom studies have shown the registration accuracy of the system to be equivalent to that of ...

N2 - The introduction of endoscopy, in conjunction with the technical development of endoscopy such as high definition and 3D, has had a significant impact on the field of endonasal transsphenoidal surgery. Cur-rently, endoscopic surgery is applied for the resection of not only sellar tumors but also parasellar tumors such as anterior skull base tumors, intraorbital tumors, cavernous sinus tumors, infratemporal fossa tumors, clival tumors, and others. Endoscopic endonasal surgery is expected to be used more frequently in the near future. In this paper, based on our own experiences and after reviewing the recent publications, we summarize the indications for endoscopic surgery, focusing on pituitary tumors, craniopharyngiomas, and tuberculum sellae meningiomas. In pituitary tumor surgery, operative results by ...

I was really looking forward to getting my hands on this textbook. I am always left ever so slightly stunned by Aldo Stamms lectures; they feel a little like a rollercoaster journey, where one is taken on a thrilling ride through the endoscopic anatomy of the skull base, with arteries and cranial nerves flying past at every turn. As a lecturer, Aldo is hard to beat in terms of both charm and dynamism, but sometimes I am left feeling a little inadequate as I cant quite keep up. I was therefore quite looking forward to the opportunity to stroll through at a slightly gentler pace, with the option to turn back the page and re-read a section, in the way you could never quite do in a lecture. Excuse me, could you just run through those last three slides again doesnt really work out so well..

The transition from external approaches to an endonasal corridor has seen a significant decline in patient morbidity and inpatient care. Our Rhinology and Cranial Base Surgery Group has been able to focus on the management of certain pathologies, endoscopic access to various areas in the skull base, reconstruction of the defect, ensuring that clear anatomical landmarks can be identified during the surgery, and improving the quality of life/function after treatment. The focus on surgical treatment is always to control disease and cure patients by not only reducing recovery time and perioperative morbidity, but also decreasing the long-term impact of having a tumour removed. With a dedicated combined operating theater setting with updated instrumentation, the Neuro-ENT team is able to continue to expand and develop endoscopic care for a greater number of patients and wider range of pathologies.

AU - Anand, Vijay K.. AU - Schwartz, Theodore H.. PY - 2011/12/1. Y1 - 2011/12/1. N2 - The surgical approach to the skull base has traditionally been transcranial, often involving extensive bone drilling, brain retraction, and nerve manipulation to expose pathology. The endoscopic endonasal approach represents a minimal access, maximally aggressive alternative that provides a direct route to the area of interest. Few data exist that can be used to compare these 2 surgical strategies. We conducted a systematic review of case series and case reports in hope of furthering our understanding of the role of endoscopy in the management of difficult cranial base lesions. We found that the endonasal endoscopic technique generates equivalent or greater rates of gross total resection than open approaches for craniopharyngiomas, ...

AU - Ledesma, Ernesto. AU - Rostomily, Robert. AU - Sekhar, Laligam N.. PY - 2010/6. Y1 - 2010/6. N2 - Background: There has been marked evolution in techniques in skull base surgery including the development of minimally invasive endoscopic supraorbital, transnasal, and more recently, transorbital approaches. These have been typically described as isolated, rather than concerted approaches. It is possible that rather than using these approaches alone, they could be combined with transnasal approaches to provide improved manipulation angles, shorter working distances, and optimal visualization of the pathology. The primary objective of this study is therefore to determine whether these pathways can be combined in "multiportal" approaches to further improve the surgeons ability to access and manipulate ...

Objective: Despite the development of atraumatic microsurgical techniques and skull base approaches, tumors of the craniocervical junction still pose a major challenge. Due to the highly vulnerable vascular and neural structures, they are often only subtotally resected. They may represent an indication for adjuvant radiosurgery.. Methods: Between July 1992 and September 2001, 12 patients with a mean age of 48 years (range 15-68) received a postoperative radiosurgical treatment with the Gamma Knife. Nine patients had meningiomas, two had hemangioblastomas and one suffered from a chordoma. The median tumor volume was 3.8 ccm (range 0.79-15.6 ccm). Follow-up time ranged from 36-120 months (median 64). The tumor borders were covered with volume curves on the 45-60% isodose and received a marginal dosis of 12-15 Gy.. Results: Follow-up MR images revealed tumor shrinkage in 7 cases, constant volume in 3 cases and increased tumor size in 2 patients. Neurological examination showed improved status in 6 ...

The basicranium has been argued to contain a strong phylogenetic signal in previous analyses of primate cranial morphology. Therefore, further study of basicranial morphology may offer new insights into controversial phylogenetic relationships within primate groups. In this study, I apply 3-D geometric morphometric techniques in a phylogenetic analysis of the African papionin basicranium. The effects of allometry strongly influence African papionin basicranial morphology and, unless these size effects are controlled or eliminated, phylogenetic analyses suggest traditional phylogenetic groupings of small taxa (mangabeys) and large taxa (geladas, mandrills, drills, and baboons). When the effects of allometry are eliminated by excluding size-correlated principal components (PCs) or by regression analysis with retention of residuals, phylogenetic analyses of African papionin basicranial morphology are incongruent with recent molecular and morphological studies. By contrast, a cladistic analysis of ...

A Client/Server Database System with improved methods for performing database queries, particularly DSS-type queries, is described. The system includes one or more Clients (e.g., Terminals or PCs) connected via a Network to a Server. In general operation, Clients store data in and retrieve data from one or more database tables resident on the Server by submitting SQL commands, some of which specify queries--criteria for selecting particular records of a table. The system implements a Data Pipeline feature for programming replication of data from one database to another in client applications. Specifically, a pipeline object and SQL SELECT statement are built using a Pipeline Painter. The Data Pipeline lets a user (developer) easily move data from a high-end database server (e.g., Sybase) to a local database (Watcom SQL), all without the user having to issue SQL commands. The pipeline object facilitates moving data from one database management system to another, or between databases of the same type.

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a unique tumor, which is endemic in Southern China, including Hong Kong. The management of locally recurrent tumors has been challenging, because of the anatomy and the effects of recent radical radiotherapy. Over the past few decades, various surgical approaches to the region have been investigated, aiming at providing a wide access to the nasopharynx without causing unnecessary trauma to the normal surrounding structures. Improving the understanding of skull base anatomy and the biological characteristics of the tumor, as well as advances in instruments and techniques, allows surgical salvage of early recurrent tumors using the minimally invasive procedures, such as the endoscopic endonasal approach and the transoral robotic surgical approach. For locally advanced tumors, however, the maxillary swing operation provides wide access to the bilateral nasopharynx and the ipsilateral parapharyngeal space, allowing resection of large tumors with adequate margins. ...

Giant cell tumours (GCT) of the skull base account for approximately 1% of all GTC of the bone. Despite being considered as a benign neoplasm, they are locally aggressive with high recurrence rates after incomplete surgery. Due to the small number of cases reported in skull base, standardized treatment remains unclear. Even with new surgical techniques, a complete resection in skull base tumours is not always possible without functional compromise. Therefore, adjuvant therapy is essential to enhance local control and quality of life. We described a case treated successfully with primary surgery followed by Cyberknife stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and denosumab with a 48-month follow-up. To the best of our knowledge, the usage of combined therapy, SRS and denosumab, in skull base GCT has not been previously described.

Abstract BACKGROUND: We study the occurrence and management of the trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) during neurosurgical procedures for lesions of the skull base. METHOD: Two hundred patients underwent neurosurgical procedures for various skull base lesions and were evaluated retrospectively for the occurrence of the TCR during surgery. This phenomenon was defined as the onset of bradycardia lower than 60 beats/minute and hypotension with a drop in mean arterial blood pressure of 20% or more due to intra-operative manipulation or traction on the trigeminal nerve. FINDINGS: Sixteen patients (8%) had a TCR intra-operatively (7 vestibular schwannomas, 5 sphenoid wing meningiomas, 3 petroclival meningiomas, 1 intracavernous epidermoid cyst). In all 16 patients with a TCR the postoperative courses presented no complications that could be directly related to this intra-operative phenomenon. CONCLUSIONS: Due to the intracranial course of the trigeminal nerve several surgical procedures at the anterior, middle

Palliative RT has been the standard treatment for skull base malignancies providing excellent relief of pain and improvement of cranial nerve dysfunction in up to 78% of patients [4-9]. More recently, SRS has been employed as a less invasive option for the treatment of skull base metastases with the aim to deliver a high dose to the target with dose sparing of critical structures such as the optic nerves and chiasm. The efficacy of single-fraction SRS for skull base metastases has been reported in few studies that include either nasopharyngeal carcinomas or skull base metastases [14-17]. Iwai et al. [15] treated 21 patients with cavernous sinus cancers, including 12 patients with metastases from systemic cancer. At a median follow-up of 13 months, the 1-year and 2-year tumor control rates were 68% and 47%, respectively, with no significant differences between nasopharyngeal carcinoma and metastases. After SRS, there was a resolution or improvement of preoperative cranial nerve deficits in 47% of ...

Endoscopic endonasal surgery is a minimally invasive technique used mainly in neurosurgery and otolaryngology. A neurosurgeon or an otolaryngologist, using an endoscope that is entered through the nose, fixes or removes brain defects or tumors in the anterior skull base. Normally an otolaryngologist performs the initial stage of surgery through the nasal cavity and sphenoid bone; a neurosurgeon performs the rest of the surgery involving drilling into any cavities containing a neural organ such as the pituitary gland. Antonin Jean Desomeaux, a urologist from Paris, was the first person to use the term, endoscope. However, the precursor to the modern endoscope was first invented in the 1800s when a physician in Frankfurt, Germany by the name of Philipp Bozzini, developed a tool to see the inner workings of the body. Bozzini called his invention a Light Conductor, or Lichtleiter in German, and later wrote about his experiments on live patients with this device that consisted of an eyepiece and a ...
The membership of the North American Skull Base Society (NASBS) is a tremendous resource for the training of fellows, who are the future of the development of our specialty. The society has developed a registry of skull base fellowships that are offered by the society membership.. The society recognizes that we are a diverse and multidisciplinary group comprised of several different specialties, all of whom have significant interest and focus in the management of skull base neoplasia. Likewise, the nature and character of the various fellowships will represent and reflect their differences. In addition, we recognize that there will be variation between individual fellowship experiences resulting from the differences in the preceptors approaches and practices..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Transfrontal-Sinus-Subcranial Approach to Olfactory Groove Meningiomas: Surgical Results and Clinical and Functional Outcome in a Consecutive Series of 21 Patients. AU - Barzaghi, LR. AU - Spina, A. AU - Gagliardi, F. AU - Boari, N. AU - Mortini, P. PY - 2017. Y1 - 2017. N2 - Background The transfrontal-sinus-subcranial approach (TFSSA) allows for direct exposure and removal of olfactory groove meningiomas (OGMs), without any brain retraction. Compared with other skull base approaches (e.g., fronto-orbitobasal, transbasal, subcranial, fronto-orbitozygomatic, and one-and-half approach), it could offer the same advantages but is less invasive. Objective We report the results in a series of 21 consecutive patients with OGMs and operated on through TFSSA, to propose a viable alternative approach. Methods Mean maximum tumor diameter was 45.9 ± 3.4 mm (range, 25-70 mm). The aim of surgery was Simpson grade I removal. Surgical, clinical, and functional outcomes were reported. Mean ...
