Abstract

The transnasal endoscopic resection of ventral skull base lesions represents a safe and effective method for the surgical management of sinonasal and ventral skull base malignancies in carefully selected cases. The goal of surgery is complete removal of all tumor with negative resection margins while maintaining the key oncological principles. Careful selection of cases along with the presence of an experienced surgeon and a fully involved multidisciplinary skull base team trained in the management of ventral skull base neoplasm are essential for excellent outcomes.
