BACKGROUND: The armamentarium for anterior skull base (ASB) reconstruction includes a variegate spectrum of grafts, endonasal pedicled flaps, regional pedicled flaps, and free flaps, which are selected to face specific scenarios. The use of a vascularized flap in case of large ABS defects ensures an adequate blood supply. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible role of temporoparietal fascia flap (TPFF) in ASB reconstruction.
