Skull base tumours are tumours present at the base of the skull. They may be malignant or benign.Endoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical approach with the advantage of shorter hospital stay, less complications and quicker recovery. This involves the accurate visualization of the tumour through an endoscope. The endoscope is a pen-sized thin instrument attached with the camera and that sends pictures to the external display that guides the surgeon. Both the endoscope and the microsurgical instruments are either inserted through individual two or more small holes in the skull (neuroendoscopy) or through the nose and sinus (sinonasal endoscopy).

The procedure can be performed to:

  • Inspect the brain
  • Biopsy/remove small tumours
  • Drain/remove cysts and
  • Create bypass channels for circulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)

Procedure For transsphenoidal removal of pituitary tumour?

  • This procedure is performed to remove a pituitary tumour in the pituitary gland. The tumour is reached by working through the nose.
  • To accurately localise your tumour a computerised guidance system and a microscope is used to assist with the surgery.
  • By working through one nostril, a hole is made at the back of the nose into the sphenoid sinus, through a layer of bone between the sphenoid sinus and the pituitary gland to gain access to the tumour.
  • To help fill the hole from where the tumour was removed, it may be necessary to remove small pieces of fat and other tissue through a small cut in your thigh or abdomen.
  • Tissue glue may be used to secure the tissue fat and other tissue in place. This helps to prevent leakage of brain (cerebrospinal) fluid.
  • The cut in your leg will be closed with sutures and the nose packed with a spongy material.
