The operative management of craniopharyngiomas has evolved over the last two decades. Traditional transcranial microsurgical approaches were the only option until the advent of the endoscopic endonasal approach. It has given surgeons the ability to tackle a challenging entity from a new perspective with comparable if not superior results. In this review we outline the advancements in endoscopic endonasal approach for craniopharyngiomas, address controversies and review the current literature.


KEY WORDS: Endoscopy; Craniopharyngioma; Minimally invasive surgical procedures
