Abstract

A commonly used method for resurfacing of the middle fossa floor is the fascia-bone-fascia technique. One disadvantage of this technique however is the occasional migration of the bone graft. To prevent this, we have modified the technique to include securing of the graft using simple craniotomy fixation materials. We have now used this method in five patients, all of whom have had satisfactory clinical outcomes. Follow-up imaging has demonstrated the grafts to have remained in their original position.
