Atraumatic Sylvian Fissure Split: Nuances and Pitfalls

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An appropriately wide, efficient, and atraumatic split of the Sylvian fissure is technically challenging; this task does not often receive the respect or attention it deserves. Mastering efficient fissure dissection is imperative for protecting the cerebrovascular structures and using dynamic retraction for optimal exposure of the lesions within the peri-insular region and around the circle of Willis.
