Tumors of the orbital apex region are traditionally difficult to approach surgically due to key anatomic structures found in this highly crowded region. We present a case of progressively enlarging orbital apex venous angioma treated with a novel endoscopic transnasal septotomy technique. We highlight the key steps to this approach, as well as specific landmarks necessary to achieve a safe and successful outcome.
