Olfactory neuroblastoma (ON) and ethmoid adenocarcinoma (AC) are rare sinonasal malignancies that often involve the skull base. Standard surgical treatment is craniofacial resection (CFR), which allows for efficient removal but entails significant morbidity and mortality. Because expanded endoscopy nasal approaches are newly developed, we aimed to describe the procedure in patients with ON and AC and compare it with CFR in terms of efficiency and morbidity.

Abstract

Olfactory neuroblastoma (ON) and ethmoid adenocarcinoma (AC) are rare sinonasal malignancies that often involve the skull base. Standard surgical treatment is craniofacial resection (CFR), which allows for efficient removal but entails significant morbidity and mortality. Because expanded endoscopy nasal approaches are newly developed, we aimed to describe the procedure in patients with ON and AC and compare it with CFR in terms of efficiency and morbidity.
