SKULLBASE  SURGERY
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.
