Abstract

THE SURGICAL MANAGEMENT of aneurysms of the basilar apex is one of the most challenging areas in neurosurgery. Successful treatment of this subgroup of aneurysms is dependent on the mastery of technical nuances that have been pioneered and advanced over the past 4 decades. Although both the traditional transsylvian and subtemporal approaches have distinct advantages, each is associated with significant limitations. In this article, the senior author shares his insights into a hybrid approach: the extended lateral transsylvian approach. This approach combines the assets of the two traditional approaches while eliminating their liabilities.
