Because of the proximity of the oropharynx (a naturally contaminated region) to the spinal structures of the craniocervical junction, it is possible that small mucosal lacerations in the oropharynx caused by unstable traumatic craniocervical injuries may become contaminated and lead to secondary infection and osteomyelitis. In this report, the authors(More)
OBJECT Skull base chondrosarcomas are slow-growing, locally invasive tumors that arise from the petroclival synchondrosis. These characteristics allow them to erode the clivus and petrous bone and slowly compress the contents of the posterior fossa progressively until the patient becomes symptomatic, typically from cranial neuropathies. Given the site of(More)
Atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation in association with head and neck infectious process (Grisel’s syndrome) is a rare disease and poorly reported. The syndromè s pathogenesis is unclear and several theories have been proposed to explain it. This paper report a 7 year old child with Grisel’s syndrome and the literature on this subject is briefly reviewed.
Objective Access to the pterygopalatine and infratemporal fossae presents a significant surgical challenge, owing to their deep-seated location and complex neurovascular anatomy. This study elucidates the benefits of incremental medial maxillectomies to access this region. We compared access to the medial aspect of the infratemporal fossa provided by medial(More)
BACKGROUND The optic canal is a bony channel that connects the anterior cranial fossa and orbit and contains the optic nerve and ophthalmic artery. It can be affected by several pathologies, leading to compression of the nerve nearby or inside the canal, leading to visual impairment. The usual technique to decompress the canal is through a craniotomy, but(More)
BACKGROUND The quadrangular space permits an anterior entry into Meckel's cave while obviating the need for cerebral or cranial nerve retraction. This avenue is intimately associated with the cavernous sinus; thus, from this ventral perspective, it is feasible to visualize the anteromedial, anterolateral, and Parkinson triangles. METHODS Twenty middle(More)
