Do you know there are some #brain#tumors that can be removed through the #nose ?
The most common is the #pituitarytumor
Those tumors can produce hormones like growing-hormone, prolactin, cortisol, thyroid hormone, and others. But there are some tumors that do not produce hormones and symptoms appear when they compress structures like optic nerves. Sometimes #headache is the only symptom.
Currently, endoscopic resection through the nose is the gold standard approach worldwide, including @mayoclinic@clevelandclinic@hopkinsmedicine and a big etcetera.
For this purpose, state of the art tools are used, like endoscopes, Neuro navigator, ultrasonic aspiration, and of course, postoperative care at the ICU.
