Resection of anterior clinoidal meningiomas is a challenging task due to their localization, frequent involvement of the major cerebral arteries and cranial nerves, a high risk of postoperative neurological deficits, and low radicalness of surgery. AIM: To evaluate the radicalness of microsurgical removal and a neurological deficit in the early postoperative period in patients with anterior clinoidal meningiomas. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 35 patients with anterior clinoidal meningiomas underwent surgery at the Department of Neurooncology of the Novosibirsk Federal Neurosurgical Center in the period from 2013 to July 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Cases of a ruptured pericallosal artery aneurysm with a high risk of intraoperative premature rupture and technical difficulties for proximal vascular control require a technique for the early and safe establishment of proximal vascular control. METHODS: A combined pterional or subfrontal approach exposes the bilateral A1 segments or the origin of the ipsilateral A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) for proximal vascular control. Proximal control far from the ruptured aneurysm facilitates tentative clipping of the rupture point of the aneurysm without a catastrophic premature rupture...

BACKGROUND: Basilar tip aneurysms are one of the most complex vascular lesions to treat surgically because of their location, depth of the approach, and close proximity of vital neurovascular structures such as the mesencephalon, cranial nerves, perforating arteries to the thalamus. There are different surgical approaches utilized to reach basilar tip aneurysms, namely, pterional, pretemporal, orbitozygomatic, subtemporal, and anterior petrosectomy. Each of them has its advantages and limitations...

OBJECTIVE: Many new endovascular devices have been used under the guidance of the International Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial (ISAT). Clipping still offers higher occlusion rates, and its technique continues to evolve, resulting in smaller exposures and reduced manipulation to brain tissue. We sought to evaluate the routine use of the minisphenoidal approach to manage intracranial aneurysms in a high-volume institution. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed our database of aneurysm patients from October 2013 to May 2016...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cranial fossa dural arterio-venous fistulas (DAVFs) represent 6% of all intracranial DAVFs; characteristically they show an aggressive behaviour with high risk of intracranial haemorrhage. Peculiar anatomical features, such as feeding by the ethmoidal arteries and the pattern of venous drainage (frequently with varices that mimic aneurysmal dilatation), can be evaluated in detail only by digital subtraction angiography (DSA), which represents the "gold standard" in the diagnosis of such cranial fistulas...

Pterional craniotomy (PT) has long been the standard approach for the treatment of middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms, even though it may cause temporalis muscle atrophy, facial nerve injury, and masticatory difficulties. Minipterional craniotomy (MPT) is an alternative approach that may provide the same surgical corridor, limiting the risk of postoperative esthetic and functional complications. From January 2011 to December 2014 we consecutively performed 68 craniotomies for surgical treatment of unruptured MCA aneuryms: 37 were standard PT and 31 were MPT...

BACKGROUND: Complex aneurysms of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) may require a bypass procedure as part of their surgical management. Most current bypass paradigms recommend technically demanding side-to-side anastomosis of pericallosal arteries or use of interposition grafts, which involve longer ischemia times. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of an anterior temporal artery (ATA) to ACA end-to-side bypass. METHODS: Fourteen cadaveric specimens (17 ATAs) were prepared for surgical simulation...

The pterion, on the lateral aspect of the cranium, is where the zygomatic, frontal, sphenoid, squamosal, and parietal bones approach and contact. The configuration of these bones distinguishes New and Old World anthropoids: most extant platyrrhines exhibit contact between the parietal and zygomatic bones, while all known catarrhines exhibit frontal-alisphenoid contact. However, it is thought that early stem-platyrrhines retained the apparently primitive catarrhine condition. Here we re-evaluate the condition of key fossil taxa using μCT (micro-computed tomography) imaging...
