Abstract

Peritrigonal lesions are deeply seated and are surrounded by critical neurovascular structures. Traditional transcortical approaches carry the risk of damage to important surrounding white matter tracts. In this regard, a posterior interhemispheric approach gives a more direct and less invasive route and therefore is a reasonable alternative to transcortical approaches. The 3-dimensional video includes illustrations and animations showing the anatomy of the white matter tracts around the trigone and explains the physiological basis of posterior interhemispheric precuneal approach to this complex region. This also includes a 3-dimensional operative video of the same approach in a 50-yr-old male patient with left periatrial lesion describing surgical techniques and nuances. An informed written consent has been obtained from the patient.
