Abstract

Endoscopic approaches to the supraorbital nerve for migraine surgery has been shown to be superior to direct transpalpebral approaches. This modification to the endoscopic approach, with the use of a D-knife blade, can be employed in patients with a long forehead or severe frontal bossing, which may normally lead to difficult access and visualization of the supraorbital foramen.
