Abstract: Endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery is associated with a low level of patient-reported post-operative nasal morbidity. There is no significant difference in frequency of crusting, blockage, pain or discharge between pituitary and other anterior skull base pathology groups. However, anterior skull base surgery would appear to be associated with an increased rate of anosmia post-operatively.
