Abstract

This study focuses on the surgical approaches to intraventricular tumors which have developed within the cavity of the lateral ventricle. The first section is dedicated to embryology and describes the wrapping of the telencephalic vesicles around the thalamus and the morphogenesis of basal nuclei and commissures. In the second section, the anatomy of the lateral ventricles is described, along with their arterial and venous vasculature, their relationship with the eloquent cortical areas and cortical sulci, and their relationship with white matter fascicles, especially the optic radiations. In the third part, the main surgical approaches to the frontal horn, to the ventricular atrium and to the temporal horn are detailed.
