Endoscopic Endonasal Transsphenoidal Surgery Book Excerpt:

Currently, surgical management provides the definitive treatment of choice for most pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas and meningiomas of the sellar region. The elegant minimally invasive transnasal endoscopic approach to the sella turcica and the anterior skull base has added a new dimension of versatility to pituitary surgery and can be adapted to many lesions in the region. In this multi-author book with numerous color illustrations the main aspects of the endonasal endoscopic approach to the skull base are presented, starting with a clear description of the endoscopic anatomy, the panoramic view afforded by the endoscope and the development of effective instruments and adjuncts. After the diagnostic studies, the strictly surgical features are considered in detail. The standard technique is described and particular aspects are treated, including the new extended approaches to the cavernous sinus, spheno-ethmoid planum and clival regions.

Pituitary Surgery Book Excerpt:

The management of pituitary adenomas and other sellar tumors is one of the most difficult tasks for neurosurgeons and endocrinologists. Optimal treatment requires a multidisciplinary approach; neurological, ophthalmological, and endocrinological tests are all required. Fortunately, the past decade has seen rapid improvements in the management of patients with pituitary adenomas and other sellar tumors. Transsphenoidal surgery has gone from being an innovative approach to pituitary adenomas to having become the standard procedure for a whole variety of sellar and para-sellar lesions. The authors contributing to this book expertly detail the state-of-the-art treatment of patients with pituitary adenomas, covering operative approaches, peri-operative management, surgical pathology as well as the newer extensions such as image guidance and endoscopy. They also identify the complementary roles of radiosurgery and transcranial surgery in the approach to sellar and suprasellar tumors. In addition the text gives a glimpse at what the future may hold for the treatment of such tumors. The present volume of Frontiers of Hormone Research will be of great value for endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and otolaryngologists in the treatment of patients with pituitary adenomas.

Cranial Craniofacial and Skull Base Surgery Book Excerpt:

The Fruits of Reinvention Surgery related to the human head, its compartment and contents has been reinvented over the past 40 years. A number of instruments, most notably the sophisticated medical imaging device and the operating microscope, have principally fueled this evolution. Along the way, endoscopy and sophisticated navigation capabilities have added to the realization of a unique comprehension of normal and abnormal microanatomy permitting corridors and manipu- tions that allow novel strategies for surgery in these highly vital functional areas. Cappabianca, Califano and Iaconetta have created a detailed and fully modern review of methods and strategies related to complex surgery and therapies associated with this robust reinvention. Technical innovations abound! Distinguished practitioners of these unique developments in the history of surgical - terprise present these amazing technical exercises. The catalog of these approaches, inst- mentation, techniques, strategies and manipulations is inspiring and stands as a testimony to the remarkable progress that we have witnessed in recent decades. The presentation in truly “modern” and represents in many aspects pinnacles of operative achievement. We must ask ourselves, what will be next? Los Angeles, November 2009 Michael L.J. Apuzzo, M.D., Ph.D (hon) Preface We belong to a lucky and happy generation, living during a period of many dramatic, if not revolutionary, technical and technological innovations, such as the digital era, which have changed and improved our routine surgical practice, together with the quality and quantity of life of our patients.
