Transnasal illumination to guide the craniofacial resection of anterior skull base neoplasms

Alan R. Cohen, Paul B. Tartell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors describe use of a flexible fiberoptic light source to guide the craniofacial resection of anterior skull base neoplasms. The light is introduced transnasally and serves to outline the perimeter of the tumor, helping to direct the safe placement of intracranial osteotomies and en bloc tumor removal.
