Nose Cancer Surgery

Nose Cancer Surgery

There are a few cases of nose cancer surgery in many countries: 300 per year, one per 100,000 inhabitants approximately. Almost half (42 percent) is due to professional reasons, linked to exposure to toxic agents (powders, organic solvents, metals), but fortunately today it is increasingly possible to intervene with endoscopic surgery, improving the quality of life of patients and limiting side effects, in particular, possible cosmetic damage.

Most Definite And 3D Images: The Surgeon Sees Better 

The modern approach of endoscopic surgery is now applied in 80 percent of cases to the treatment of inflammatory nasosinusal and benign basal-skull diseases and, in selected cases, also for malignant disease. According to the experts participating in the conference, the benefits, for the benign pathologies, consist mainly in the almost complete eradication of the tumor (in the most favorable situations and with less compromise up to 80 percent of the disease). And in the possibility of interventions in a day hospital for inflammatory pathology, with local anesthesia, a more rapid recovery, and almost invisible traumas. The progress achieved in this direction has today allowed the treatment of both the inflammatory and the malformation (liquor or post-traumatic) malformations of the skull-base, that is of the head and neck, as well as the expansive benign and malignant tumor. The improved quality of the optical fibers and the improvement of the surgical field vision (thanks to high-definition endoscopic instruments, which have greatly optimized the image quality and a three-dimensional technology that allowed the acquisition of the third dimension of the depth) have refined the nose cancer surgery, giving the possibility to faithfully follow anatomical structures, with increasingly minimally invasive interventions.

New Instruments To Preserve The Aesthetics

In practice, the nasal cavities are exploited as natural ports of entry to the base-skull to extract from the nostrils the tumor diseases at the border between the skull and the nose or even intracranial diseases (inside the skull), close to the nose, such as meningiomas (tumors that originate from the cells of the cerebral meninges) of the anterior fossa and all the pathology of the pituitary gland. A progress that has been possible thanks to the introduction of other technological innovations such as angled drills that allow to remove the structures “around the corner” without breaking down what is in front, that is to say working inside the nasal sinuses preserving the structures bearers of the nose and of the facial massif, the ultrasonic suction devices that suck both the neoplastic tissues and the bone without heating,
