The Interhemispheric Approach for Ventricular and Periventricular Lesions
Since the introduction [4, 5] of the two basic surgical principles for lesions affecting the supratentorial ventricular system — the transcortical and interhemispheric transcallosal approaches — there has been argument about the better of the two alternatives. The literature describes numerous approaches and variations on these two principles for any part of the third or lateral ventricles. Authors claim to have better results with their preferred approach, but a comparative study does not exist. Our own study is also purely descriptive and updates our recent experiences with the interhemispheric transcallosal approach.
