OBJECTIVE To describe the exposure obtained through six approaches to the perimesencephalic cisterns with an emphasis on exposure of the posterior cerebral artery and its branches. METHODS Dissections in 12 hemispheres exposed the crural, ambient, and quadrigeminal cisterns and related segments of the posterior cerebral artery. A Stealth Image Guidance workstation (Medtronic Surgical Navigation Technologies, Louisville, CO) was used to compare the approaches. RESULTS The transsylvian… CONTINUE READING
