Abstract

The pyramidal tract is one of the most important motor fiber systems and must be preserved during surgery in the area of the precentral gyrus. Detailed knowledge of the localization of the pyramidal tract and the craniocerebral topography facilitates its preservation [6-8]. In the present study Klingler’s fiber dissection method was applied to dissect the pyramidal tract in the frontal lobe and centrum semiovale, in order to obtain exact data on the topography of the pyramidal tract.
