The Fronto-Temporal-Orbito-Zygomatic (FTOZ) approach is one of the standard skull base approaches. It provides a great exposure of the caverno-orbital junction and central skull base. It lowers the line of sight for access to the suprasellar region. The one piece approach is based on the MacCarty keyhole and understanding the anatomy of the Inferior Orbital Fissure (IOF) is essential.
