Ever since the Journal of Neurosurgery (JNS) published its first volume in 1944, the journal has reflected the scientific, technical, and clinical evolution of our specialty and parent organization, first called the Harvey Cushing Society and later the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. The JNS has been an uncompromising arbiter of progress in our specialty, and its superb editorial stewardship has led to its recognition as the premier journal in the field. The impact rating of JNS and its wide circulation among neurosurgeons worldwide are two of the many reasons why most of the truly innovative and paradigm-shifting advances in neurosurgery have been published in its pages.

As part of the 75th anniversary of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons celebration, the JNS Publishing Group has initiated a project of reviewing papers published over the years that have had the highest impact factor and greatest scientific interest: papers that have heralded new knowledge, new concepts, and new techniques that have been at the heart of modern neurosurgery and its continuing excitement and progress. We hope you will enjoy these articles and the accompanying commentaries. In this issue we present the next paper in this series.

✓ The rationale for the transsphenoidal approach in the surgical management of craniopharyngioma is presented, based on experience with 26 cases. In 14 patients without prior therapy, nine had “total” removal of the lesion, and only two had permanent postoperative diabetes insipidus. One operative death occurred in this group, and two patients had cerebrospinal fluid leaks. In 12 patients who had undergone prior craniotomy, successful palliation was accomplished, at least temporarily, in every case. Vision was improved postoperatively in 15 of the 16 patients who presented with visual loss. Enlargement of the sella by the tumor is the critical feature allowing for successful transsphenoidal management.
