Several problems of the skull base can be surgically managed with endoscopic surgery which is performed through the nose. This technique avoids open surgery of the brain and their risks. The results of this approach are very satisfactory.
Endoscopic skull base surgery can be performed for:
- Tumors of the nose and paranasal sinuses
- Pituitary gland tumors
- Clival chordomas
- Olfactory groove menengiomas
- CSF leakages
