Extended anterior craniofacial resection for intracranial extension of malignant tumors
Practice Guidelines as Topic
Anterior craniofacial resection is indicated for patients with resectable disease. The complication rate is comparable with that of patients without intracranial extension. Gross total resection with histologically negative margins portends a better prognosis. Esthesioneuroblastoma has a better prognosis than other tumor types.
