Despite widespread adoption and advances in endoscopic skull base surgery, with expanding indications and the ability to effectively treat larger and more complex pathologies, skull base reconstruction following tumor resection and prevention of cerebrospinal fluid leak remains a challenge for even the most seasoned of surgical teams. Mounting evidence in all areas have pushed our understanding of skull base reconstruction principles forward. In this narrative review, we summarize critical concepts and provide practical but comprehensive guiding principles on preoperative, intraoperative/technical, and postoperative management principles related to optimizing skull base reconstructive success. The goal is to provide an informative resource for skull base surgeons (both otolaryngologists and neurosurgeons) to reference regarding state-of-the-art evidence surrounding this ever-evolving topic.
