Abstract

The introduction of the endoscopic endonasal approach for the management of lesions of the skull base has produced a paradigm shift in the way complicated lesions of this complex anatomic location are managed. The endonasal approach provides the most direct route to the anterior cranial base and adjacent skull base locations. This article presents the 10 most important tenets that have proved useful to the authors regarding postoperative patient management and surgical practice.
