The sphenoid sinus has traditionally been considered a poorly accessible structure, situated deep in the center of the head and surrounded by vital structures. Aggressive benign and malignant tumors are usually considered to be inoperable because of the proximity of such structures, thus precluding the possibility of total extirpation. Using the transfacial-subcranial approach, lesions at this site can be totally excised. Significant tumor-free survival rates can be anticipated.
