Abstract

The tentorial edge and its relationship to the mesencephalon and the adjacent structures on the one hand and its role as a border between the supra- and infratentorial region on the other hand play a special part in surgical and anatomical publications. Surgical exposure of the tentorial edge can be performed by various approaches, each possibility having topographic and anatomical limits. The appropriate approach is chosen according to the relationship of the process to the tentorial edge. The present paper discusses the various approaches to this region by reference to 30 cases of tentorial edge meningioma.
