The authors clarify the anatomic basis and the usefulness of the transcondylar fossa approach (T-C-F A), in which the posterior portion of the jugular tubercle is removed extradurally through the condylar fossa with the atlanto-occipital joint intact. The authors first performed an anatomic study to identify the area to be removed using cadaveric specimens and then applied the T-C-F A to foramen magnum surgeries. The surgeries included clipping a vertebral artery-posterior inferior cerebellar… CONTINUE READING
