Anterior craniofacial resection in the previously irradiated patient

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Background: Anterior craniofacial resection has been shown to be an effective alternative for the surgical control of malignancy of the anterior skull base. While the majority of these procedures are performed either alone or in conjunction with postoperative radiation, it is often necessary to consider this option as salvage in the previously irradiated patient. We reviewed our experience over the last 10 years in order to establish success rates and rates of complication for patients with disease of varied histology in an area previously irradiated either immediately prior to surgery or in the remote past. Methods: We reviewed the charts of 254 patients who underwent an anterior craniofacial resection during the period between September 1990 and September 2000. Conclusions: Salvage anterior craniofacial resection after radiation is a viable alternative in the indicated patient. However, patient selection is important, as patients are susceptible to higher rates of complication.
