Stereotactic transnasal and and transoral procedures have been reported by different authors in the past. In this paper, several modifications of these methods are described. The modifications are: transnasal approach to the frontal skull base and suprasellar regions; and transoral approaches to the clivus, the petroclival junction, medial part of the cerebellopontine angle and the lateral mass of C-1. Eleven patients were operated on using these modifications. The procedures were for biopsy and brachytherapy. No complications resulted from the procedures.
