The provider accesses the anterior cranial fossa using an orbitocranial (transorbital) approach to expose an extradural (outside the dura) lesion or defect at the skull base. A suborbital ridge osteotomy, elevation of the frontal and or temporal lobes, and orbital exenteration are included in this approach procedure. The selection of a particular approach will depend on the location and size of the lesion.
