Use of Pericranial Flaps in the Management of Cranial Base Trauma

Abstract

Pericranial flaps based on the musuloaponeurotic or myofacial layers of the scalp have great utility in the management of acquired and congenital craniofacial deformities. Their use in traumatic deformities is indicated in the presence of craniopharyngeal communications and significant anterior cranial fossa dead space created from frontal sinus obliteration. The indications and operative techniques and the results of the use of these flaps in 10 consecutive patient with extensive cranial base trauma are presented.
