FERNANDES, Yvens Barbosa et al. Supraorbital eyebrow approach to skull base lesions. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2002, vol.60, n.2A, pp.246-250. ISSN 0004-282X.

We report our experience with a supraorbital eyebrow minicraniotomy. This technique is suitable to lesions situated in the region of the anterior fossa, suprasellar cisterns, parasellar region and Sylvian fissure. A 50 mm incision in the eyebrow and a supraorbital minicraniotomy is performed. Sixteem patients harboring different lesions were operated on with good postoperative and cosmetic results. We conclude that this approach is safe and useful in selected cases.

Keywords : tumor; aneurysm; skull base; minimally invasive; surgical approach.
