Abstract

The infratemporal fossa aproach developed by Fisch, has been used with and without modifications in 17 cases. General review of the technique and modifications, including neodural creation, lateral sinus ligation, facial nerve rerouting, canal wall rebuilding and eustachian tube preservation are discussed. Use of a specific technique should be judged on an idividual basis for maximum results. This approach if effective in tumors of the temporal bone that extend to the internal carotid artery, infratemporal fossa, clivus, and parasellar areas.
