Treatment for skull base lesions usually consists of surgery, either traditional or computer-assisted. When surgery is necessary, preference is given to the use of minimally invasive techniques to minimize trauma to the brain and surrounding structures of the skull base.

Interventional neuroradiology may allow treatment of skull base vascular diseases, such as cerebral aneurysms, with intravascular flexible coils that can eliminate these life-threatening lesions without surgery or brain manipulation.
