Endoscopic endo-nasal surgery for craniopharyngioma

Endoscopic endonasal trans-sphenoid approach for craniopharyngioma is safe and effective alternative to trans-cranial approach in selected patients in expert hands with good endoscopic experience. Although this technique is associated with effective tumor removal and improved visual outcome, CSF leak, and endocrine dysfunctions remain a major challenge.

Cirugía endoscópica endonasal de los craneofaringiomas

El enfoque endoscópico endonasal transesfenoidal para el craneofaringioma constituye una alternativa segura y eficaz al tratamiento transcraneal en pacientes seleccionados y en manos expertas con buena experiencia en endoscopía. Si bien, está técnica se asoció con una remoción tumoral eficaz y una mejoría en los resultados visuales, la pérdida de líquido cefalorraquídeo y las disfunciones endocrinas continúan como el desafío principal.
