Endoscopic endonasal surgery for resection of a pterygopalatine fossa malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour: 2-Dimensional operative video.

World Neurosurg 2021 Apr 7. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Neurological Surgery, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford, UK; Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, UK. Electronic address:

The pterygopalatine fossa (PPF) is an inverted, pyramid-shaped space immediately behind the posterior wall of the maxillary sinus and lesions arising here include juvenile angiofibromas, schwannomas and, in exceptionally rare cases, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours. Surgical access to the PPF is challenging and been historically achieved via an open transmaxillary approach associated with facial scaring/deformity as well as potential injury to facial and infraorbital nerve branches. We present the case of a 67-year-old female with facial numbness secondary to a presumed trigeminal schwannoma in the right PPF on MRI. Read More

Unusual Presentation of a Sphenoidal Sinus Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

Cureus 2021 Mar 4;13(3):e13689. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Hematology and Medical Oncology, Saint Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital, Pontiac, USA.

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have a heterogeneous pathology and indolent behavior, with the most common location being the gastrointestinal tract and then the lungs. The head and neck are rare sites of NET presentation with varied clinical signs and symptoms, which occasionally delay the diagnosis, thereby leading to an advanced stage at presentation. We present a rare case of paranasal sinus small cell neuroendocrine tumor and perform a review of the literature. Read More

Ear Nose Throat J 2021 Apr 8:1455613211003802. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, 37803Medical University of Warsaw, Banacha, Warsaw, Poland.

Objectives: The possibility of visualization of the frontal sinus during endoscopic surgery depends on 3-dimensional configuration of the frontal sinus opening (FSO). We aimed to determine the prevalence of unfavorable angulation of the lower part of the posterior wall of the frontal sinus and its relation to FSO diameter.

Methods: One hundred and twenty-eight computed tomography (CT) scans were retrospectively reviewed to measure (1) the angle between the nasal floor and the plane tangent to the posterior table of the frontal sinus above the most posterior aspect of the anterior buttress (frontal angle, FA) and (2) dimensions of the FSO.

Techniques and challenges of the expanded endoscopic endonasal sellar and parasellar approaches to invasive pituitary tumors.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2021 Apr 7. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Neurological Surgery, The Ohio State University Medical Center, N-1049 Doan Hall, 410 West 10th Avenue, Columbus, OH, 43210, USA.

Background: Superb knowledge of surgical anatomy and nuances to remove the natural barriers preventing full access to the paramedian skull base determines the ease of using the expanded sellar/parasellar approaches as the main gateway for all the parasagittal modules during endoscopic endonasal access (EEA) to pituitary tumors with cavernous sinus (CS) invasion.

Methods: Throughout stepwise-cadaveric dissections and pertinent intraoperative analysis, we describe surgical pearls and pitfalls of the parasellar-EEA with special references to the utility of various lines/classifications on neuroimaging correlated with strategies to enhance surgical safety and tumor resection.

Conclusion: EEA to invasive parasellar pathologies needs to address strict bleeding control and displacement of neurovascular structures inside the CS, posing a chance for neurologic morbidities/ICA injury. Read More

Effectiveness of the intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging during endoscopic endonasal approach for acromegaly.

Pituitary 2021 Apr 3. Epub 2021 Apr 3.

Department of Neurosurgery, Shinshu University School of Medicine, 3-1-1 Asahi, Matsumoto, 390-8621, Japan.

Chronic Invasive Fungal Sinusitis With Negative Histopathology: A Diagnostic Challenge.

Ear Nose Throat J 2021 Mar 30:145561320973773. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Although the diagnosis of chronic invasive fungal sinusitis relies chiefly on identification of invasive fungi on histology, the insidious nature of the disease can preclude detection of fungal organisms. Here, we present a case of chronic invasive fungal sinusitis with negative histopathologic findings and a definitive diagnosis made through fungal DNA detection. Clinicians should consider polymerase chain reaction an important complement to histology and culture in the diagnosis of chronic invasive fungal sinusitis. Read More

The Endonasal Endoscopic Management of Cerebrospinal Fluid Rhinorrhea.

Cureus 2021 Feb 20;13(2):e13457. Epub 2021 Feb 20.

Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, King Fahad Specialist Hospital, Dammam, SAU.

Introduction Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea is the result of a bony defect at the skull base with disruption of the arachnoid, dura mater, and sinonasal mucosa that leads to an active CSF leak and flow of clear fluid from the nose. The endoscopic repair of CSF leaks and skull defects have been used by an increasing number of surgeons and is the standard of care for repairing CSF leaks. Materials and methods We conducted a retrospective study of all cases of CSF leaks managed via the endonasal endoscopic approach from 2010 to 2020 at a tertiary referral hospital of King Fahad Specialist Hospital, Dammam (KFSH-D).
