Surgery of the nasal cavity may be exposed primarily via a dorsal or ventral approach. Surgical treatment of lesions of the nasal cavity usually is limited to benign lesions or in combination with adjunctive therapy such as radiation therapy. Caution must be exercised with a dorsal approach to the nasal cavity to avoid complications of inadvertent penetration of the brain case. Gentle tissue handling and careful closure of the mucoperiosteum must be exercised following a ventral approach to minimize the risk of oronasal fistula formation.
