Updated multi-institutional database studies assessing perioperative risk factors on 30-day morbidity and mortality after skull base surgeries are limited. We aim to identify perioperative risk factors and report the incidence of 30-day morbidity and mortality in adult patients after skull base surgery.

Bilateral choanal atresia (BCA) is associated with a high incidence of congenital abnormalities that include skull base anomalies and defects. Surgical repair of BCA is necessary in the early neonatal...
Malignancies of the skull base represent a highly diverse and challenging set of pathologies which exhibit a wide array of oncologic behavior. In recent decades, a number of important advances in trea...
Complex skull base tumors can involve critical vessels of the head and neck. To achieve a gross total resection, vessel sacrifice may be necessary. In cases where vessel sacrifice will cause symptomat...
Skull base chordomas and chondrosarcomas are rare tumors traditionally treated by surgical resection and adjuvant radiation therapy (RT). We will discuss data evaluating clinical outcomes of proton th...
Meningiomas are the most common primary intracranial tumor, arising from different locations, including the skull base. Despite advances in adjuvant treatments, surgical resection remains the main and...
The purpose of the study is to analyze biological samples and genetic material for basic science research investigating the molecular and cellular characterization of skull base tumors.
Endonasal endoscopic approach to the skull base has been expanded in the last several years owing to advances in the radiological aspect that provided a better evaluation of the lesions an...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if proton beam therapy, with or without photon beam radiation therapy, is effective in the treatment of skull base chondrosarcoma. The ...
In PINOCCHIO-Triayl, carbon ion radiotherapy is compared to proton and advanced photon radiotherapy in patients with skull base meningiomas. There will be two treatment arms with photons, ...
This project aims to produce a systematic review on present knowledge on effects of using safety checklists in medicine. Implementation of a checklist system throughout surgical care may r...
Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).
Research aimed at assessing the quality and effectiveness of health care as measured by the attainment of a specified end result or outcome. Measures include parameters such as improved health, lowered morbidity or mortality, and improvement of abnormal states (such as elevated blood pressure).
The inferior region of the skull consisting of an internal (cerebral), and an external (basilar) surface.
Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.
Either of a pair of compound bones forming the lateral (left and right) surfaces and base of the skull which contains the organs of hearing. It is a large bone formed by the fusion of parts: the squamous (the flattened anterior-superior part), the tympanic (the curved anterior-inferior part), the mastoid (the irregular posterior portion), and the petrous (the part at the base of the skull).
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
