The temporalis flap is a common flap used in head and neck reconstruction. In this article, the authors present a new modification of the use of the temporalis muscle flap for orbital skull base reconstruction with the use of a sphenoid keyhole. This technique confers multiple advantages in reducing the arc of rotation and providing a tension-free reconstruction of the orbital skull base.
