Abstract

Objectives/Hypothesis: The mainstay treatment for juvenile angiofibromas is surgery. Endoscopic techniques have been applied to the resection of juvenile angiofibromas, The aim of the study is to establish the efficacy of endoscopic and endoscopic-assisted techniques for the removal of juvenile angiofibromas, Study Design: Retrospective review. Methods: Retrospective review was made of all patients with juvenile angiofibromas who were treated with endoscopic and endoscopic-assisted surgery hom January 1994 to July 1999. Results: Fifteen tumors in 13 patients were removed using endoscopic or endoscopic-assisted surgeries. In 11 patients, endoscopic surgery or endoscopic-assisted surgery (or both) was successful and the patients remained without evidence of disease at a me dan follow-up of 34 months. In two patients tumor persisted, which was detected during routine follow-up less than 6 months after the initial surgery. These tumors were managed with a second endoscopic or endoscopic-assisted surgery, and patients remained without evidence of disease. We encountered one postoperative complication, a progressive optic neuropathy that was successfully managed with endoscopic decompression. Conclusions: Endoscopic and endoscopic-assisted surgery is a feasible alternative or adjunct to traditional techniques.
