Supraorbital approach

The supraorbital approach is a minimally invasive and cosmetically favorable alternative to more extended approaches with longer operative times used for the management of optic nerve decompression in posttraumatic or compressive optic neuropathy from skull base pathologies extending into the optic canal (OC). The relative ease of this approach provides a relatively short learning curve for developing neurosurgeons 1).
