Expanded Endoscopic Endonasal Transtuberculum Approach for Resection of Germ Cell Tumor
Paediatric (childhood) open and endoscopic skull base cases and tumours like craniopharyngiomas are always challenging to treat surgically. I recently published our operative video demonstrating application of principles of wide exposure and microsurgical skill in endoscopic endonasal resection (via nose) of a seemingly small but adherent lesion in a child with germ cell tumour to achieve optimal long term outcome for the patient.

We continue to use these open and endoscopic endonasal techniques to remove difficult skull base tumours in children and adults and achieve optimal clinical outcomes.
Bristol Expanded Endoscopic Endonasal Skull Base Dissection Course 24th-26th October 2022, Vesalius Training Unit, University of Bristol, Bristol
Mr Kumar Abhinav recently directed this course featuring local and international faculty from centres in the UK and USA. The course was aimed at practising neurosurgeons, ENT surgeons and senior trainees and featured participants from around the UK and overseas. The course over 3 days covered all high yield complex endoscopic approaches with coverage of contemporary open skull base approaches. The course was rated as 9 or 10 out of 10 by all of the participants. The course was supported by Stryker, Storz, Medtronic and Severn.
Over 1 day between 11:30 to 17:00 GMT, the webinar will cover the full spectrum of expanded endoscopic endonasal approaches to the skull base.
There will be a focus on high yield surgical approaches and their relevance to specific disease processes including complex pituitary adenomas, tuberculum sella meningiomas, craniopharyngiomas, skull base sarcomas (chordomas and chondrosarcomas) and petroclival meningiomas among others.
