Abstract

The aims of this review are to critically review the surgical approaches to the internal carotid artery (ICA) at the skull base as reported in the literature. We discuss the relevant anatomy and the common indications and approaches to the internal carotid artery at the skull base are outlined. We conclude that open surgical approaches to the ICA at the skull base are feasible with careful anatomic dissection and can be performed with minimal morbidity in most cases. The optimum approach continues to be debated.
