Endoscopic Surgery for Juvenile Angiofibroma: The final diagnosis is achieved by histopathologic examination of tissue sections either on incisional or excisional biopsy.

The classic triad of epistaxis, unilateral nasal obstruction, and a mass in the nasopharynx suggests a diagnosis of nasopharyngeal angiofibroma and is supplemented by imaging 11 12 13 14 Imaging plays an important role in diagnosis, as biopsies should be avoided due to the risk of brisk hemorrhage, as well as staging.

All 20 patients were available for follow-up maximum, 7 yearswith none showing evidence of tumor recurrence. Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma[TI] free full text[sb]. They may extend towards the nasopharynx, which includes the maxillary, ethmoid, and sphenoid sinuses.

Ras mutations and expression in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Most investigations about the JNA genetics leads to nasofaringgeo unconcluded or that do not add too much information to the existing knowledge about the tumor.


The origin and development of JNA is not fully understood. Moreover, the mean blood loss in these patients nasofarijgeo mL. Extraoral examination revealed normal appearing overlying skin.

Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma

Evaluation of the effectiveness of preoperative embolization in surgery for nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. To minimize complications, surgery should be performed at centers with extensive experience. The tumor is limited to the sphenopalatine foramen, nasopharynx, and nasal cavity without bone destruction.

This deception has brought us more space for access to tumor All surgeries were performed under general anesthesia, days after angiography with embolization of the tumor. The JNA vascular and fibrous components present a synchronic maturation, with regular and progressive change of blood vessels, and suggest that the tumor has a growth limited by the vascularization decreasing 5with possible involution having been already reported 7. The results showed that three out of eight patients did not express the GSTM1, representing Patients undergoing embolization require external carotid clamping due to collateral circulation, which can increase bleeding.

Numerical sex chromosome aberrations in juvenile angiofibromas: Sanchez de Nazofaringeo G. In addition, preoperative embolization may complicate the identification of the full extent of surgical margins by reducing the tumor size and increasing the risk of relapse None of our patients experienced complications due to embolization. There is marked contrast enhancement following administration of contrast, reflecting the prominent vascularity.

Laterally, these tumors may extend to and fill the pterygomaxillary fossa, causing the posterior wall of the maxillary sinus to bulge and eroding the pterygoid plate.
