Abstract for 'Front to back, side to side, inside out: The evolution of a specialty'
Skull Base Surgery is a relatively new multi-disciplinary specialty that has developed rapidly over the last 50 years. From humble beginnings over 100 years ago, the collaboration of neurosurgeons and ENT surgeons reduced the mortality and morbidity associated with both benign and malignant intracranial and skull base disease. Subsequent contributions by both diagnostic and interventional neuro-radiologists, maxillofacial and plastic surgeons together with radiation oncologists have transformed the outcomes for our patients. Advances in technologies have also played a major part.
The evolution of this specialty will be outlined and illustrated with special attention to key moments and development.
