Advances in approaches to the cranial base: minimizing morbidity.

Facial Plast Surg 2008 Jan;24(1):129-34

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, New York 10029, USA.

The most innovative and meaningful recent advances regarding surgery of the cranial base involve the ability to perform a complete resection followed by a water- and airtight reconstruction while minimizing facial incisions and morbidity. Perhaps the first step in this direction took place when the subcranial/subfrontal approach was introduced for anterior skull base surgery. Originally developed by Raveh in 1978 for the management of severe skull base injuries, these approaches were later adapted for the treatment of congenital anomalies prior to their utilization for resection of anterior skull base tumors.

Craniofacial resection: decreased complication rate with a modified subcranial approach.

Skull Base Surg 1999 ;9(2):95-100

The authors have successfully utilized a modified subcranial approach to the anterior skull base, based upon the procedure first described by Joram Raveh, as an alternative to standard craniofacial resection. The complication rate of this procedure in 31 consecutive cases (28 tumors, 2 congenital malformations, and 1 mucocele) has been 19.4% with no permanent complications, no deaths, no new neurological deficits, no brain injuries, no infections, and no seizures.

Pericranial wrapping of the frontal bone after anterior skull base tumor resection.

Authors:
Ziv Gil Dan M Fliss

Plast Reconstr Surg 2005 Aug;116(2):395-8; discussion 399

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Background: Classic craniofacial resection and the subcranial approach are well-established techniques for the removal of tumors involving the anterior skull base. These techniques require frontal craniotomy to allow broad exposure of the anterior cranial fossa, a procedure that may be further complicated by local infection and osteomyelitis or because of a reduction in tissue perfusion and direct communication between the osteotomy and the contaminated nasoethmoidal cavity. The authors present a new method for wrapping of the frontal bone segment with a pericranial flap with the intention of preventing these serious complications. Read More

Authors:
B Schaller

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2005 Apr 3;147(4):355-66; discussion 366. Epub 2005 Mar 3.

Department of Cranimaxillofacial, Skull Base, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University Hospital, Inselspital, Berne, Switzerland.

Fractures of the anterior skull base, because of the region's anatomical relationships, are readily complicated by neurological damage to the brain or cranial nerves. This review highlights the use of a subcranial approach in the operative treatment of injuries of the anterior skull base and compares it to the more traditional neurosurgical transcranial approach. The extended anterior subcranial approach takes advantage of the specific features of injuries in this region and allows direct access to the central anterior cranial base in order to repair fractures, close CSF fistulae and relieve of optic nerve compression.

Anterior skull base surgery without prophylactic airway diversion procedures.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2003 May;128(5):681-5

Skull-Base Surgery Unit, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, 6 Weizmann St, Tel Aviv 64239, Israel.

Objective: Although anterior skull base surgery has become a relatively safe and effective procedure, postoperative complications remain a serious problem. One of the most devastating complications of anterior skull base procedures is tension pneumocephalus (TP). In order to prevent TP, authors have recommended the use of prophylactic airway diversion procedures, such as prolonged endotracheal intubation or prophylactic tracheostomy. Read More

The subcranial approach for the treatment of cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea: a report of 10 cases.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2001 Oct;59(10):1171-5

Skull Base Surgery Unit, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Sackler Faculty of Medicine Tel-Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Purpose: Because of the likelihood of meningitis and other intracranial complications, optimal treatment for a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistula is to close the leak. The neurosurgical approach to the management of CSF rhinorrhea has been by intracranial access. Extracranial approaches are now gaining acceptance as the preferred method for initial treatment of CSF leakage, because the success rates are reasonable, and the morbidity is lower. Read More

Extended anterior subcranial approach for skull base tumors: long-term results.

J Neurosurg 1995 Jun;82(6):1002-10

Department of Craniomaxillofacial, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Bern, Switzerland.

The extended anterior subcranial approach differs significantly from more traditional surgical approaches to the skull base in that it allows a broad inferior access to the anterior skull base planes with tumor exposure from below rather than via the transfrontal route. The authors initially used the subcranial approach in 1978 for the treatment of high-velocity skull base trauma and certain craniofacial anomalies. In 1980 they expanded the indications to include the combined neurosurgical-otolaryngological resection of various skull base tumors. Read More

The subcranial approach to trauma of the anterior cranial base: preliminary report.

J Craniomaxillofac Trauma 1995 ;1(4):56-62

Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Department of Otology and Laryngology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

The subcranial approach to the cranio-orbito-frontal junction allows direct access to the central anterior cranial base for repair of fractures, dural tears, and cerebrospinal fluid fistulae. It provides good visualization without brain retraction and is suitable in primary or delayed traumatic cases. For extended visualization, a portion of the frontal sinus may be removed and repositioned at the end of the procedure. Read More

Subcranial management of 395 combined frontobasal-midface fractures.

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 1988 Oct;114(10):1114-22

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Berne, Switzerland.

In severe craniofacial injuries, the involvement of the skull base with concomitant major dural tears is significantly high. Our methods and treatment plan are controversial compared with the conventional procedure: primary urgent neurosurgical exploration and repair with deferral of maxillofacial reconstruction. To avoid the disadvantages of the transfrontal intracranial management of the skull base, we modified the transethmoidal approach so as to enable the subcranial exposure of all the anterior fossa planes, including the sellar-sphenoidal region.

The surgical one-stage management of combined cranio-maxillo-facial and frontobasal fractures. Advantages of the subcranial approach in 374 cases.

Authors:
J Raveh T Vuillemin

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 1988 May;16(4):160-72

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Bern, Switzerland.

The aim of this paper is to emphasize the advantages of a one-stage, step by step repair of facial skeletal injuries as well as the dural tears and lesions of the anterior fossa, by one and the same team. The methods described permit optimal reduction of the pseudohypertelorism and major displacements in severe combined craniofacial injuries. The simultaneous subcranial exposure of the entire basal region of the anterior fossa obviates the intracranial approach or frontal lobe retraction thus making early stage surgical management feasible.
