Gorham-Stout disease (GSD) is a rare lymphatic disorder which results in bone destruction. Defects of the skull base are difficult to manage, we describe cases to better understand the disease and discuss treatment.

We report a case of Gorham-Stout disease (GSD) complicated by chylothorax and treated with a combination therapy with interferon and bisphosphonates. This treatment may be helpful in improving the usu...
Sinonasal and skull-base tumors that previously required open resection can often be completely resected via an endonasal approach. The nasoseptal flap (NSF) is the workhorse vascularized tissue flap ...
The study aim was to analyze our own experience in treating patients with complex skull base defects accompanied by pneumocephalus and, based on the findings, to develop an optimal treatment approach ...
Dural repair during skull base approaches remains challenging, especially in presence of significant defects. The autologous fat has come as alternative to various substitute materials being used prev...
A clinical trial to asses the accuracy, usefulness and usability of a stereotactic image-guidance system during lateral skull base surgery.
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.
Prospective investigation of the effectivity of L-PRF membranes for skull base reconstruction after endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery (transsphenoidal) versus classical closure techn...
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...
Bioactive fibre-reinforced composite implant is used for reconstruction of skull bone defects and orbital floor defects. Functional and aesthetic outcome is assessed by patient and doctor...
Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).
The inferior region of the skull consisting of an internal (cerebral), and an external (basilar) surface.
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).
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
Fractures which extend through the base of the SKULL, usually involving the PETROUS BONE. Battle's sign (characterized by skin discoloration due to extravasation of blood into the subcutaneous tissue behind the ear and over the mastoid process), CRANIAL NEUROPATHIES, TRAUMATIC; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; and CEREBROSPINAL FLUID OTORRHEA are relatively frequent sequelae of this condition.

Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
