Anatomy and Surgery of the Cavernous Sinus by Vinko V. Dolenc M.D., Ph.D. (auth.)

By Vinko V. Dolenc M.D., Ph.D. (auth.)

The determination of Harvey Cushing to depart common surgical procedure and focus on the baby box of crucial frightened approach surgical procedure used to be on reflection a landmark within the historical past of neurosurgery. His focused paintings, and likewise that of his colleague Walter Dandy, originated with the wishes of either pioneers to appreciate surgical anatomy and neurophysiology. the elemental wisdom and surgical techni­ ques that they supplied grew to become the traditional of excellence for numerous generations of neurosurgeons; loads in order that the final trust was once that the surgical options couldn't be more desirable upon. Twenty-five to thirty years in the past microtechniques started to appear in a couple of surgical examine facilities, they have been then steadily utilized to medical neurosurgery and feature contributed to a brand new point of realizing in surgical anatomy and neurophysiology. we're now lucky to have a brand new average of morbidity and mortality within the surgical procedure of intrathecal aneurysms, angiomas, and tumors. it's been acknowledged that microneurosurgery used to be attaining its limits, in particular whilst treating lesions in and round the cavernous sinus and cranium base; these lesions infamous for involvement of the dural and extradural booths, with an inclination to infiltrate adjoining nerves and blood vessels. the risks of uncontrollable hemorrhage from the basal sinuses and post-operative CSF rhinorrhea seemed unsurmountable. The lateral features of the petro-clival zone were of curiosity to some pioneering ENT surgeons and neurosurgeons however the cavernous sinus in so much respects has remained the ultimate unconquered summit.

19. The entire anterolateral triangle is shown from its apex at the GG to its base at the bone of the middle fossa between the SOF and the foramen rotundum. At the front part of the anterolateral triangle "venous blood" is seen covering the fatty tissue usually found in this region. Slight retraction of VI toward the medial side exposes the Vlth nerve.

The inner layer of the lateral wall in the area of the anterolateral triangle lying over VI and V2 is visualized after removal of the "venous pool". At the most anterior point of the anterolateral triangle the inflow of "venous blood" from the vein into the CS is seen.
