Analysis of Surgical Approaches to Skull Base Tumors Involving the Pterygopalatine and Infratemporal Fossa.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Severance Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Selecting an appropriate surgical approach for resection of huge skull base tumors involving pterygopalatine and infratemporal fossa is challenging because of their rarity and high possibility of vital anatomical structure injuries. To suggest the guidance of selecting the appropriate approach by analyzing outcomes and satisfactions of known surgical approaches with our previous experience, the authors retrospectively analyzed skull base tumor cases experienced for 24 years, and condensed to 4 well-known surgical approaches: maxillary swing, infratemporal fossa type C, transzygomatic, and a combined transzygomatic-midfacial degloving approach: to review indications, advantages, and limitations of these approaches. Maxillary swing approach was useful in large-sized tumors as it provided wide surgical field; however, inevitable facial scar was the main drawbacks, especially in adolescents. Read More

Successful management of recurrent adenoid cystic carcinoma in the deep infratemporal fossa by maxillo-orbito-zygomatic approach.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Jan 6. Epub 2019 Jan 6.

Department of Head and Neck Surgery. Electronic address:

Objective: In the case of deep invasion of an infratemporal fossa (ITF) tumor, surgeons find it difficult to gain sufficient visualization and working space by conventional surgical approaches. To overcome these limitations, we have developed a novel surgical technique, maxillo-orbito-zygomatic (MOZ) approach, by combining partial lateral maxillectomy with the conventional orbito-zygomatic approach.

Methods: A 63-year-old male presented with the fifth recurrent adenoid-cystic carcinoma in the right deep ITF. Read More

Transoral Finger-Retraction for Endonasal Endoscopic Resection of Masseteric and Buccal Space Lesions.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Dec 29. Epub 2018 Dec 29.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.

Lesions involving the masseteric and buccal spaces have traditionally required transoral or transcervical approaches. Herein, the authors describe the successful endonasal endoscopic resection of a juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) with significant extension into the masseteric and buccal spaces facilitated by transoral finger retraction. Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas are hypervascular tumors originating in the pterygopalatine fossa (PPF) with complex relationships to skull base and orbital structures. Read More

Ultrasonic scalpel-assisted endoscopic endonasal surgery of infratemporal fossa: our first impressions.

World Neurosurg 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Division of Otorhinolaryngology, Department of Biotechnology and Life Sciences, HNS&FDRc, University of Insubria, Varese, Italy.

Background: Endoscopic endonasal transpterygoid approach is emerging as a valid option for treating selected tumors in the infratemporal fossa. Compared to traditional open approaches, the endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) presents more difficulty in controlling bleeding and less choice in surgical instruments for endoscopic tumor dissection, which is often performed with bipolar forceps or steel dissectors.

Case Description: We describe the use of an ultrasonic scalpel device for performing endoscopic endonasal resection of two rare infratemporal fossa tumors (mature teratoma and hemangiopericytoma), which has not been reported in the literature so far. Read More

Intraoral Endoscopic Ligation of Maxillary Artery in the Infratemporal Fossa.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan;30(1):137-140

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery and Skull Base Surgery, Autonomous University of Veracruz, Xalapa, Mexico.

Ligation of the sphenopalatine and posterior nasal arteries is indicated for posterior epistaxis as initial treatment or when conservative measures fail. In some patients, a transnasal approach or its alternative transantral approach are not possible due to tumor filling the nasal corridor, pterygopalatine fossa, or maxillary sinus. Aim of this study was to evaluate feasibility of endoscopically assisted transoral approach for the ligation of the maxillary artery (MA). Read More

Minimally Invasive Exposure of the Maxillary Artery at the Anteromedial Infratemporal Fossa.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2019 Jan;16(1):79-85

Division of Neurological Surgery, Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix, Arizona.

Background: The maxillary artery (MA) has been described as a reliable donor for extracranial-intracranial high-flow bypass. Existing techniques to harvest MA require brain retraction and drilling of the middle fossa (with or without a zygomatic osteotomy), carrying the potential risks of venous bleeding, injury to the branches of the maxillary or mandibular nerves, muscular transection, or temporomandibular junction disorders.

Objective: To describe a novel technique to expose the MA without bony drilling and with minimal impact to surrounding structures. Read More

Combined endoscopic transcervical-transoral robotic approach for resection of parapharyngeal space tumors.

Head Neck 2017 04 31;39(4):786-790. Epub 2017 Jan 31.

The Head and Neck Center, Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel.

Background: Parapharyngeal space tumors (PPSTs) pose exposure challenges; they are routinely resected by the transcervical approach using blunt/blind finger dissection, increasing the risk of tumor spillage and of neurovascular injury. Large PPSTs or those located high at the skull base often require mandibulotomy or an infratemporal fossa approach, baring considerable morbidity.

Methods: The novel minimally invasive approach described, utilizes endoscopic equipment introduced transcervically for circumferential separation of the tumor from the neurovascular structures of the skull base. Read More

Infraorbital nerve: a surgically relevant landmark for the pterygopalatine fossa, cavernous sinus, and anterolateral skull base in endoscopic transmaxillary approaches.

J Neurosurg 2016 12 4;125(6):1460-1468. Epub 2016 Mar 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Barrow Neurological Institute, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona; and.

OBJECTIVE Endoscopic transmaxillary approaches (ETMAs) address pathology of the anterolateral skull base, including the cavernous sinus, pterygopalatine fossa, and infratemporal fossa. This anatomically complex region contains branches of the trigeminal nerve and external carotid artery and is in proximity to the internal carotid artery. The authors postulated, on the basis of intraoperative observations, that the infraorbital nerve (ION) is a useful surgical landmark for navigating this region; therefore, they studied the anatomy of the ION and its relationships to critical neurovascular structures and the maxillary nerve (V2) encountered in ETMAs.
