abstract

  • Although cosmetic defects produced by posterior fossa surgery may not seem obvious, a poor cosmetic result can overshadow an otherwise successful operation. It is important to approach the operation with knowledge that each phase of a surgical procedure either directly or indirectly influences the eventual cosmetic result. The careful use of anatomic dissection and repair and attempts to reconstitute bony defects to their native contour as well as avoidance of complications all contribute to excellent cosmetic outcomes.
