OBJECT The deep cerebral veins may pose a major obstacle in operative approaches to deep-seated lesions, especially in the pineal region where multiple veins converge on the great cerebral vein of Galen. Because undesirable sequelae may occur from such surgery, the number of veins and branches to be sacrificed during these approaches should kept to a minimum. The purpose of this study was to examine venous drainage into the vein of Galen with a view to surgical approaches. If a vein hampering… CONTINUE READING
