Unique skull base surgical resource features strategic, technical, and philosophical pearls from master surgeons.

Unlike other textbooks that only emphasize the technical building blocks surgeons need, this resource focuses on state-of-the-art skull-base procedures, important thought processes, and vital strategies required to perform them.

Size and shape variations, diverse biological characteristics, different anatomic locations and extensions, and specific relationships and entanglements with nerves and vessels make all skull base tumors unique and highly challenging. In addition to anatomy, two other important factors need to be considered every time a surgeon enters the OR – the particular circumstances of the patient and surgeon. Throughout this remarkable book, master neurosurgeons take readers on an insightful journey exploring the decision-making process of choosing and executing a surgical approach, with firsthand pearls from the battlefield.

Key Highlights

Nine sections organized by anatomy cover tumors in the anterior, anterolateral, lateral, central, postero-superior, and postero-inferior skull base regions, and clivus, petrous bone, and ventricles Thirty-two systematically organized chapters flow from clinical presentation and radiographic/anatomical findings of specific patients and tumors – to decision-making and execution of the surgical approach Real-life cases enhance understanding of all the elements that go into each operation Perspectives sections at the end of each chapter embrace the concept of diverse surgeon viewpoints on similar ideas, techniques, and approaches This exemplary book is essential reading for neurosurgery and otolaryngology residents, fellows, veteran practitioners, and allied health personnel who care for patients with skull base tumors.

360-Degree Skull Base Course



Program

Strasbourg, France

The courses will take place in our IRCAD Institute in Strasbourg, France (http://www.ircad.fr/).

This full immersion workshop is intended for neurosurgeons or ENTs from the world over, who wish to learn and practice the technical skills required for skull base surgery. It has been structured to provide didactic lectures, surgical videos, and over 27 hours of hands-on cadaver dissection sessions, covering a broad spectrum of transcranial keyhole, endoscopic, endonasal and combined approaches. A panel of prominent leaders in these fields of expertise will deliver lectures focusing on skull base anatomy, transcranial, endoscopic assisted and endoscopic endonasal approaches as well as therapeutic strategies for skull base lesions. The scientific program will include a guest speaker session on a topic related to skull base neurosurgery, with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts. Topics previously discussed included acoustic neuroma, microvascular decompression, radiosurgery for skull base lesions, pediatric skull base neurosurgery, brainstem cavernomas, chordomas, revascularization and reconstruction techniques. Attendees will benefit from more than 27 hours of hands-on dissection in the outstanding IRCAD surgical lab environment with state-of-the-art equipment provided by our dedicated sponsors. For hands-on sessions, a live demonstration will be performed at the master station, broadcasted on a 3D screen and at each workstation. In the meantime, participants will work in pairs on prepared injected fixed specimens, under the guidance of a distinguished expert faculty.
