Title : Emerging roles for endoscopic and minimally invasive treatment of skull base pituitary adenomas


Anterior skull base surgery has undergone important innovations with the integration of endoscopic techniques in the treatment of various skull base and intracranial pathologies. Traditional approaches to the anterior skull base have involved microscopic techniques or open cranial surgery. Endoscopic approaches may reduce surgical trauma, improve visualization, and improve surgical resection. This presentation will review some of the surgical approaches for the treatment of pituitary adenomas focusing on patient selection and surgical techniques. Surgical anatomy, patient complications and patient outcomes will be discussed. Case examples will be provided to illustrate some of the surgical techniques, instrumentation, and reconstruction. Insight from these examples can potentially be applied to other anterior skull base pathologies.


Dr. Michael Karsy completed residency at the University of Utah in 2020 and a fellowship in minimally invasive and open skull base surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in 2021. He is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Neurooncology and Skull Base at the University of Utah. His research interest is on surgical outcomes, translational research, and implementing surgical techniques from the lab to the operating room. He has published over 130 peer-reviewed papers on various neurosurgical and neurooncology topics, provided numerous regional and national lectures on neurooncology, as well as edited a textbook on surgical subspeciality education for medical students and residents.
