Abstract

Surgical approaches to orbital apex lesions involve the medial and lateral corridors. The transorbital neuroendoscopic (TONE) approach has been recently proposed as an elegant, bone-sparing, and minimally invasive alternative for tumors of the lateral orbital compartment. However, its effectiveness compared with the standard lateral orbitotomy approach still requires confirmation. The aim of the present report was to describe the key technical aspects of the lateral trans-eyebrow TONE approach and to review the relevant reported data on the surgical management of ectopic orbital intraconal meningiomas.
