The definitive state-of-the-art resource on pediatric endoscopic endonasal approaches

Today, expanded endonasal approaches (EEA) have revolutionized the surgical treatment paradigm for pediatric central skull base lesions. Specially adapted micro-instruments have been developed to permit passage through the narrow sinonasal pathways in children, enabling access to the entire midline skull base, from the crista galli to the cervico-medullary junction.

Pediatric Endoscopic Endonasal Skull Base Surgery by Harminder Singh, Jeffrey Greenfield, Vijay Anand, and Theodore Schwartz is the first textbook focused solely on endoscopic endonasal management of cranial base pathologies in children. The book reflects in-depth expertise from an extraordinary group of international contributors from five continents, who share extensive knowledge on this emerging field. Thirty chapters are presented in three comprehensive sections.

Key Features

Core topics including anatomy, rhinological and anesthetic considerations, patient positioning and OR set-up, instrumentation, and endonasal corridors and approaches

Fifteen chapters detail endoscopic treatment of a full spectrum of pediatric pathologies, such as craniopharyngioma, meningoencephalocele, basilar invagination, and benign and malignant tumors, among others

Discussion of multiple skull-base closure techniques, managing complications, and neurosurgical and otolaryngological postoperative care

Visually rich, the succinct text is enhanced with 500 high-quality surgical illustrations and intraoperative photographs, as well as procedural videos

This unique reference is essential reading for neurosurgical and otolaryngology residents and fellows, as well as veteran surgeons, nurse-practitioners, and physician-assistants who treat and care for pediatric patients with skull-base conditions.

XIV National Congress of the Spanish Skull Base Society SEBAC

Official language spanish

see Program here 

We are pleased to address you to present the XIV National Congress of the Spanish Skull Base Society SEBAC, which will be held in Alicante on October 24 and 25, 2019, under the slogan “Multidisciplinary work in Skull Base Surgery”. The pre-congress “Surgical Anatomy of the 3D Skull Base” will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

It is a great satisfaction for us to invite you to participate in this meeting, oriented to the participation and interaction between professionals, in which we will be able to share new perspectives for the study and debate of the topics of greatest interest and topicality in the field of skull base surgery.

We have accepted the responsibility and commitment to organize this congress, taking care of every detail and motivated to design a scientific program of maximum interest, with national and international guests of maximum recognition, being open to the participation of all interested parties by presenting communications

We have set the goal of holding a congress in which the goal is the learning of skull-based surgeons, with content aimed primarily at the unification of knowledge among different specialists in this field, with the support of numerous contributions and renowned experts and supported by an important audiovisual support that makes the sessions especially educational and intuitive.

From Alicante, the city chosen as the venue for the meeting, we encourage all professionals related to skull base surgery to participate in this experience and to share some pleasant days with us.

Finally, we want to thank the board of our society (SEBAC), the societies of each specialty, SENEC, SEORL, SECOM and also the Formedika Technical Secretariat for their invaluable help and support for the realization of this congress.

A warm greeting.

State of the art approaches and insightful discussions on challenging topics in skull base surgery.

Advances in endoscopic, microsurgical, radiosurgical, and pharmacotherapeutic strategies have revolutionized the treatment of skull basepathologies. Controversies in Skull Base Surgery, edited by Andrew Little and Michael Mooney and authored by esteemed multidisciplinary contributors, focuses on management strategies and treatment options for a wide range of skull base tumors, while addressing the most urgent and challenging questions facing skull base surgeons today.

Throughout nine sections and 46 chapters, experts describe the treatment of neoplasms such as vestibular schwannomameningiomapituitary adenomacraniopharyngiomachordoma, cranial nerve schwannoma, sinonasal malignancies, and others. In many chapters, authors provide instructional case studies and suggestions for future studies to help clarify areas of controversy. This textbook is unique in that it tackles problems typically minimized or ignored by other texts that impact a patient’s quality of life and recovery.

Key Highlights

Reader-friendly tables feature concise summaries, author pearls, and levels of available evidence Pearls and insights on hotly debated issues such as the role of radiosurgery, surgery vs. medical management, radical resection vs. subtotal resection, and proton-beam vs. photon therapy for various pathologic conditions.

Controversies not frequently discussed in depth, including the use of lumbar drains, postoperative antibiotics, and cerebral revascularization in skull base surgery; multidisciplinary collaboration in endoscopic endonasal surgery; skull base reconstruction techniques; and the future of robotics in skull base surgery.

This stellar resource will benefit all residents and advanced practice providers who evaluate and treat patients with skull base pathologies, including neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, and radiation and medical oncologists.
