About Video

This video begins with a detailed depiction of the anatomy of the skullbase and the intracranial contents as viewed endoscopically, followed by the surgical demonstration of a suprasellar craniopharyngioma. The wider panoramic view offered by the endoscope has resulted in the development of a variety of modifications of the trans-sphenoidal approach, targeted mainly to the entire skullbase from the most anterior areas to the craniovertebral junction and adjacent regions. As long as this approach has been gaining acceptance, it is of utmost importance to perfect anatomical knowledge of areas dealt with from a somehow opposing trajectory as compared to the conventional neurosurgical approach.
