Abstract

Sinonasal tumors are an uncommon pathological entity and applying the optimal treatment may represent a challenge, even for experienced physicians. A various number of techniques and materials may be used in the reconstruction of craniofacial defects following surgery for extensive sinonasal cancer. The aim of the present study was to present the case of a 33-year-old male patient diagnosed with a large sinonasal tumor and discuss the challenges faced while selecting the most suitable rehabilitation technique. In the present case, it was decided that the optimal solution was to use a craniofacial prosthesis in order to cover the entire defect, as well as a temporoparietal flap. In summary, reconstructive interventions must always be adapted to each individual patient and a multimodal approach may lead to a highly satisfactory outcome, for both the patient and the surgical team. All the reconstructive solutions available must always be kept in mind and adapted to the individual requirements of each case, taking into consideration both the extent of the tumor and the comorbidities of the patient, as there is no one solution that is considered as optimal for all patients.
