Skull Base?
Does skull base generally refer to Skull base tumor or vascular?
Depends on who you're asking. These days it probably refers more to skull base tumor surgery, although some skull base fellowships (Miami, Utah, USF, among others) have a fair amount of open vascular. Skull base tumor surgery is really an entirely different way of thinking about tumor surgery. Plenty of vascular-trained folks think they can do skull base surgery equally well, but depending on who you ask that may not be the case. You'll probably do more vascular surgery in most skull base fellowships than you will skull base tumor surgery in vascular fellowships.
