This technique has its origin at the end of the nineties. Here an approach is made with the endoscope through the nostrils without incisions, tears nasal septum or nasal mucosal dissections. This type of intervention allows better visualization of the pituitary and tumor. Your benefits directly affect the patient: significantly reduces local complications (perforation of septum, cacosmia, gingival anesthesia, anosmia etc.), reduces surgical time, offers greater comfort (no nasal packing after surgery and decreased post-surgical pain) It reduces the mean postoperative hospital stay only 24-48 h in centers with extensive experience with this technique and significantly better cure rate. An important factor for the successful implementation of this type of intervention is the experience of the neurosurgeon. It is internationally recognized that these surgeons should have a minimum experience of 100 cases and more than 25 cases a year to maintain proper skills. </p><p> This technique has allowed access through the nose, without requiring craniotomy (transcranial approaches), to more complex skull base tumors are meningiomas, craniopharyngioma, chordoma and chondrosarcoma. Our group was the first worldwide to make a clipping of an aneurysm of the vertebral artery through the broken nose. </p><p> <strong>Minimally invasive neurosurgery</strong> currently represents a breakthrough, allowing operate brain tumors through the nose, not having to manipulate the brain and reduce the number of complications in our patients. </p>
