HERNANDEZ ALTEMIR, F. et al. The real origin of transfacial methodology. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.6, pp.367-375. ISSN 2173-9161.

Despite technological advances in a globalized world conflicts always arise about authorship of scientific procedures. To help resolve the conflicts that arise about the origin of transfacial surgery we have been entertained with bibliographical support to organize the aspects of a possible origin and author as it is understood today. Without forgetting people in history that in the XIX century foreshadowed and provided ideas from which we could determine who was the first to write the content and true possibilities. Putting those who incorporated the procedure late, with pretensions of protagonism in their place.

Keywords : Transfacial access; Cavum; Clivis; Skull base.
