Anatomy Based on Interhemispheric Approach for Surgery of Craniopharyngioma
Pp. 116-133 (18)
In this chapter, based on interhemispheric approaches including the corridor
through fronto-basal, anterior part of interhemispheric space and also through interfonix
corridor, we illustrated the advantage of different approaches. And the related
structures such as, pituitary gland, pituitary stalk, and hypothalamus were depicted
under such surgical view. The other accessory structures, for example, optic pathway,
sphenoid sinus and also the cavernous sinus were described as well. Moreover, the
morphological features of craniopharyngioma were analyzed and then how to choose
the most appropriate approaches was discussed.
