Modified orbitozygomatic craniotomy (MOZC) is an anterior lateral skull base approach characterized by simplicity and wide exposure. The approach was first introduced in 2003 and there are few clinical reports. This report details treatment of patients with large (>4 cm) sphenoid wing meningiomas via a MOZC approach, and to the authors' knowledge, the first published in English. Total resection was achieved in all 5 patients in this study. One patient experienced a postoperative epidural hematoma that was successfully treated. All patients returned to daily activity without neurological sequellae. The advantages of MOZC are sparing of the zygomatic arch and removal of the orbital rim; hence, the surgeon can plan a capacious operative field without excessive brain retraction and resect the tumor before opening the dura. The MOZC approach is a clinically feasible, low morbidity, surgical option for paraclinoid lesions, such as large sphenoid wing meningiomas.
