The Role of Robotic Surgery in Sinonasal and Ventral Skull Base Malignancy.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Over the past decade, robotic surgery has gained wide popularity, making a significant impact on multiple surgical specialties. In the head and neck arena, transoral robotic surgery has proven to be safe and associated with acceptable oncological and superior functional outcomes for surgery of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, supraglottis, and glottis; thus, changing the paradigm for the management of tumors in these anatomic locations. Robotic surgery of the ventral skull base is at an early stage of development. In this article reviews the literature discussing the role of robotic surgery in managing sinonasal and ventral skull base malignant lesions.
