Special Issue Information
Anterior skull base tumors encompass a range of benign and malignant pathologies that occur along the junction of the cranial base and sinonasal cavity. Optimal management of these tumors is multidisciplinary and must balance oncologic outcomes with patient function and quality of life. In recent years, surgical management has been transformed by the advent of endoscopic endonasal resection. However, open approaches remain a necessary tool in extensive tumors in specific anatomic regions. Additional treatment modalities also play a critical role, including radiation therapy and systemic chemotherapeutics.
This Special Issue will highlight the current state-of-the-art management of skull base tumors, outcomes of treatment, anatomic features of skull base surgery, and advances in the management of sinonasal malignancies.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Garret W. Choby
