Evolution of the Intracranial Approaches to Jugular Foramen Tumors: A Surgeon's Personal Perspective Through Three Illustrative Cases.

Jean WC, Felbaum D - Cureus (2016)

Bottom Line: Tumors of the jugular foramen remain challenging lesions despite advances in surgical technique and medical technology.Tumors with extensive extra- and intracranial components necessitate both radical neck dissection maneuvers combined with skull base approaches.We present a single surgeon's perspective in managing these difficult tumors.

ABSTRACT
Tumors of the jugular foramen remain challenging lesions despite advances in surgical technique and medical technology. Tumors with extensive extra- and intracranial components necessitate both radical neck dissection maneuvers combined with skull base approaches. We present a single surgeon's perspective in managing these difficult tumors.
