Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas are rare, benign vascular tumors of the nasopharynx that account for less than 0.5% of all head and neck tumors. These lesions occur almost exclusively in young males. There are various approaches that allow for successful resection of nasopharyngeal angiofibromas, including open, endoscopic, and combined procedures. With the advancement of endoscopic technologies, the endoscopic approach has become the favored technique for smaller, less extensive lesions.
