Endoscopic skull base surgery; a comprehensive guide with illustrative cases.

Humana Press Inc.


193 pages




Shahinian, director of the Skull Base Institute, compiles the latest techniques for minimally invasive, endoscopic surgical techniques at the skull base. Step-by-step operating room procedures are illustrated with about 600 color photos and images. Material is in chapters on anesthetic considerations, neuroendocrine aspects of skull base surgery, interventional neuroradiology aspects, and instrumentation. The last five chapters detail the fully endoscopic endonasal approach, the fully endoscopic transglabellar approach, the fully endoscopic supraorbital approach, the fully endoscopic retrosigmoid approach, and the fully endoscopic subtemporal approach. These chapters on specific surgical approaches follow a standardized format, with material on indications, instrumentation, operating room setup, patient positioning, operative technique, illustrative cases, and potential complications. The book will serve as a reference for physicians and health practitioners in many medical specialties.
