An adjustable nasal speculum for the extended transsphenoidal approach. Technical note



An adjustable nasal speculum for the extended transsphenoidal approach. Technical note



Journal of Neurosurgery 106(5): 932-933



The authors describe a newly modified nasal speculum that enables panoramic visualization of the deep and wide surgical field created via an extended transsphenoidal approach. In their approach, the bone around the piriform aperture is not removed.
