Removal of the orbital bar in addition to standard bifrontal craniotomy allows for additional basal exposure, minimising brain retraction and allowing early and direct access to both the vascular supply and dural origin of this tumour. Here, we describe a simple yet effective modification to the standard orbital bar osteotomy. It has the benefit of being simpler and faster with improved cosmesis compared with an osteo…
