-Historically, aggressive surgical resection was the treatment goal to minimize the risk of tumor recurrence via open [[transcranial]] midline, anterolateral, and lateral approaches, but could lead to clinical sequela of visual, endocrine, and hypothalamic dysfunction. However, recent advances in the [[endoscopic endonasal approach]] over the last decade have mostly supplanted transcranial surgery as the optimal surgical approach for these tumors. With viable options for adjuvant [[radiation therapy]], targeted medical treatment, and alternative minimally invasive surgical approaches, the management paradigm for [[craniopharyngioma]]s has shifted from aggressive open resection to more minimally invasive but maximally safe resection, emphasizing quality of life issues, particularly in regards to visual, endocrine, and hypothalamic function. This review provides an update on current multi-modal approaches for craniopharyngiomas, highlighting the modern surgical treatment paradigm for this disease entity+Historically, aggressive surgical resection was the treatment goal to minimize the risk of tumor recurrence via open [[transcranial]] midline, anterolateral, and lateral approaches, but could lead to clinical sequela of visual, endocrine, and hypothalamic dysfunction.
