The article discusses reports on the benefits of an endoscopic technique for removing orbital apex tumors through the nose. According to surgeons Chester F. Griffiths and Howard R. Krauss, the technique is safer and more cost-effective than traditional orbitotomy or craniotomy. Griffiths cited direct access to the tumor as the main advantage of the technique.
