Some lesions are located in the base of the skull. These are difficult to approach and require the skills of a team of surgeons, usually, an otolaryngologist and a neurosurgeon.
The pictures on this page show a brain tumor extending into the right infratemporal fossa through a widened foramen ovale. The lesion was removed via an orbito-zygomatic approach. A cranioplasty was carried out with BoneSource and metal plates. The bone cuts were repaired with miniplates and screws.
