Microvascular free flap reconstruction of anterior skull base defects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Improvements in skull base surgery techniques have allowed surgeons to expand the indications for resection and reconstruction of aggressive tumors. The increasingly complex defects following surgical extirpation are often reconstructed with microvascular free flaps. Techniques for free flap reconstruction of the anterior skull base are elaborated.
