Abstract

Breakthrough of the cranial base because of chronic infections, fistulae, previous trauma or craniofacial resections without proper reconstruction leads to a high risk of life-threatening complications such as meningitis, brain abscess, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, vascular injury and neurological injury [1, 2]. Other complications such as osteomyelitis, ocular dystopia and distortion of facial morphology may occur if proper reconstruction is omitted. These complications may also delay the start of planned postoperative radiation treatment or chemotherapy.
