Transcranial Orbitotomy for Retroorbital Tumors.
Soon Phill Park, Jong Oung Doh

ABSTRACT
The diagnosis of retroorbital tumor is at times difficult and the decision as to the best surgical approach to orbital tumors is often difficult. The rapid development of diagnostic radiologic procedures has provided a means of more precisely defining the nature and extent of the lesion and with the advent of microsurgical techniques, they could allow safe access to the orbit transcranially. The advantage of the transcranial approach to orbital tumors is apparent for disease processes that arise in or extend to the intracranial cavity, and superior access to the apical portion of the optic nerve and to the medial and lateral superior quadrants of the orbit. Furthermore, good functional and cosmetic outcome is possible. The authors had experienced good results of transcranial approach in 15 cases of retroorbital tumors.
