A craniofacial resection is a surgery done to remove tumors, including paranasal sinus and nasal (nose) cancers. It is used to treat tumors in these parts of the head:
Base of the skull
Around the eyes
Incisions (cuts) are made in the face and skull bone, while trying to prevent damage to the nerves, brain, and other organs. Incisions may be made:
On the side of the nose.
Behind the hairline, and possibly down to the lip.
Under the eye, or across the bridge of the nose.
Doctor will talk to you about where your incisions will likely be made. Other procedures, such as a maxillectomy, dacryocystorhinostomy (tear duct opening), or orbital exenteration (removal of the eye socket) may be done at the same time as a craniofacial resection. Bones may be removed so your surgeon can get to the tumor. Metal plates and screws may be used to put these bones back into place. If skin grafts are needed, they are often taken from your thigh.
A craniofacial resection may require the placement of a tracheostomy and a lumbar (spinal) drain.
A tracheostomy is a tube/hole in the neck that you will breathe through.
A lumbar drain allows for the release of excess spinal fluid and for medication administration.
Pneumocephalus (Air surrounding the brain).
Leaking of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into the nose.
Diabetes insipidus (Increased thirst and an increase in the amount of urine being made).
Loss of smell.
Facial nerve injury/facial numbness.
Epiphora (Chronic tearing).
Loss of sight/visual changes.
Mucocele (Collection of mucus in the frontal sinus).
Hematoma (Collection of blood).
Recovery from a craniofacial resection will depend on the extent of the surgery you have had. You will need to stay in the hospital to be watched closely. Doctor will discuss with you the medications you will be taking, such as those for pain, blood clot, infection, and constipation prevention and/or other conditions.
Doctor will talk to you about any changes to your activity level, which depend on the surgery you had. In general, you should:
Avoid strenuous activity, heavy lifting and driving until your provider tells you it is ok.
Avoid areas where there is smoke or there are large crowds.
Avoid being around those who are ill, specifically with coughs and/or colds.
Do not pick or blow your nose until your provider tells you that you can.
