Image-guided robotic skull base surgery.
Objectives To describe the potential uses of computed tomography image guidance in concert with the surgical robot for skull base surgery. Design An anatomical study was conducted. Setting Tertiary academic center. Participants Cadaveric skull. Main

Robotic surgery of the skull base.
Minimally invasive skull base surgery has advanced substantially with the advent of endoscopic technology, novel instrumentation, and intraoperative image-guidance capabilities. Robotic technology has been accepted into the surgeon's armamentarium, w

Unfavourable results in skull base surgery.
Treatment of skull base tumors involves multiple specialities. The lesions are usually advanced and the treatment is often associated with unfavorable results, which may be functional and/or aesthetic. Here we have done an analysis for the complicati

Augmented reality-assisted skull base surgery.
Neuronavigation is widely considered as a valuable tool during skull base surgery. Advances in neuronavigation technology, with the integration of augmented reality, present advantages over traditional point-based neuronavigation. However, this devel

A three-dimensional computer-based perspective of the skull base.
To describe our designed protocol for the reconstruction of three-dimensional (3D) models applied to various endoscopic endonasal approaches that allows performing a 3D virtual dissection of the desired approach and analyzing and quantifying critical

Minimally invasive multiport surgery of the lateral skull base.
Minimally invasive procedures minimize iatrogenic tissue damage and lead to a lower complication rate and high patient satisfaction. To date only experimental minimally invasive single-port approaches to the lateral skull base have been attempted. Th

Evaluation of Venous Drainage Patterns for Skull Base Meningioma Surgery.
The evaluation of venous drainage patterns prior to surgery for skull base meningioma is important owing to their deep location and the vulnerability of surrounding vascular structures. In recent years, the microsurgical skull base approach has matur

Minimally invasive surgery of the anterior skull base: transorbital approaches.
Minimally invasive approaches are becoming increasingly popular to access the anterior skull base. With interdisciplinary cooperation, in particular endonasal endoscopic approaches have seen an impressive expansion of indications over the past decade
