Abstract

The present work illustrates our experience at Toronto General Hospital with extensive anterior skull base lesions. This involves an interdisciplinary approach combining neurosurgical and otolaryngological expertise to manage neoplasms in this complex area, especially for malignant lesions, where we believe an en bloc resection of the tumor is necessary. This interdisciplinary approach is most helpful in enabling single-stage resection and reconstruction of the skull base with minimal morbidity and mortality.
