No Seats Available. Registrations Closed

Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma (JNA) is a challenging tumor of the nose to treat. This is because it is highly vascular with a propensity to spread intracranially and intraorbitally through foramina and fissures in the skull base. It can also go far laterally into the infra temporal and the temporal fossae. It has a high incidence of residual or recurrent tumors. Although historically, it was operated upon by external approaches; over the last two decades, it is being excised endoscopically. Endoscopic excision of JNA has a steep learning curve.
