<p class="abstract"><strong>Background:</strong> <span lang="EN-IN">To study the clinical outcomes of Hadad-Bassagasteguy flap (HBF) in endonasal reconstruction of anterior skull base defects. </span></p><p class="abstract"><strong>Methods:</strong> <span lang="EN-IN">We prospectively analyzed the demographic data &amp; the outcome results particularly Post-operative CSF leak in 53 patients who underwent HBF in our hospital from February 2013 to June 2014. The early harvested flap was used to

Post-operatively the patients were analyzed for CSF leak and bleeding. </span></p><p class="abstract"><strong>Results:</strong> <span lang="EN-IN">Most of the study subjects were between21-50 years of age (73.6%). The mean age of the study subjects was 41.8±13.8 years. Male/female ratio of the study sample was 1.2 with 29 males and 24 females. Of the total 53 patients 46 (86.8%) has macro defects while 7 (13.2%) had micro defects. Non-secretary lesions were present in 60.4% (32/53) patients while secretary were present in 39.6% (21/53) patients. Cerebrospinal fluid leak was present in all the patients undergoing surgery and majority of them were put on lumbar drain, while bleeding was present in 49.1% patients. Of the total 53 patients only 2 had post-operative cerebrospinal fluid leak (2/53; 3.8%). </span></p><p class="abstract"><strong>Conclusions:</strong> <span lang="EN-IN">Use of HB posterior nasal septal flap for reconstruction of anterior skull base among patients with high-flow intra-operative CSF leak has a remarkable impact in preventing post-operative CSF leak. Its applicability to wide patient-profiles with respect to age, size of defect, diagnosis is making it a versatile choice of reconstruction after endonasal anterior skull base surgeries.</span></p>
