Abstract

Resection of cavernous OSs within the oculomotor cistern, where the third nerve is clearly separated from the adjacent neurovascular structures, is feasible with functional preservation of the nerve. The chance of occurrence of the nerve palsy may increase as the resection proceeds more anteriorly toward the superior orbital fissure.
