As the sellar region location, the trans-nasal transsphenoidal corridor was thought to be the most effective approach to reach the surgical area. In recent decade, the endoscopic surgery developed extremely rapidly. As the result, more and more scholars tried to use transsphenoidal and it extended approach to dissect the craniopharyngioma (CP). In this chapter, we provided the basic anatomical details concerning the endonasal transsphenoid approach and its expanded application for surgical removal of CP. Moreover, several clinical cases and the morphological features of CP were analyzed. Base on the different classification of CP, the appropriate application of this approach was discussed.

Keywords: Anatomy, Craniopharyngioma, Transsphenoidal approach.
