Transcranial Approaches to the OrbitSource of Funding None.
Transcranial approaches to the orbit provide familiar and flexible approaches with wide access to the majority of the orbit, only limited in the inferomedial orbit. A pterional craniotomy is the predominant approach but can be expanded with an orbital or zygomatic osteotomy for even wider access. Minimally invasive approaches, such as the lateral supraorbital or “eyebrow” supraorbital approach, are options for selected pathologies and minimize morbidity related to the approach.
