OBJECTIVE To minimize surgical invasiveness, the keyhole concept is applied to the subtemporal approach. METHODS Anatomic features were studied in 14 sides of adult cadaver heads, and the technique was used in 162 interventions. Although most of the lesions treated were 3 cm in size or smaller, larger lesions were also treated using this technique. In some cases, if needed, an endoscope-assisted microsurgical technique was used. RESULTS The cadaveric study provided intimate experience with… CONTINUE READING
