Endoscopic transorbital surgery for spheno-orbital lesions: how I do it

Cesare Zoia, Daniele Bongetta, Paolo Gaetani

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Background: The endoscopic transorbital approach has been recently proposed for the surgical management of spheno-orbital lesions as an alternative to craniotomy surgeries. Method: We analyze the technical nuances and what we have changed as our experience increased after the first operations performed for 12 different spheno-orbital lesions. Conclusion: The endoscopic transorbital approach is useful for the treatment of selected spheno-orbital lesions and could represent an interesting option in experienced hands. More studies are needed to fully understand its potentialities and limitations.
