Cyst of the Sixth Ventricle (Cavum of Verga) Successful Removal through Transventricular Approach with Notes on Embryology and Histopathology

pellucidum and Verga is found as a small, non-pathogenic space in 2.5 per cent of brains examined at necropsy. 1 Corning stated that in the adult an extension of this lumen as far caudally as the splenium is present in 3 per cent of all brains, and Verga observed that these cavities are found only in the human species. 1, 2, 7 The boundaries of the cavum of Verga are as follows: Anteriorly, the anterior limit of the fornix; superiorly, the body of the corpus callosum; posteriorly, the splenium of the corpus callosum; and inferiorly, the psalterium (lyra Davidis) and

A four-wall orbital decompression for dysthyroid orbitopathy

More recently, Maroon and Kennerdell 17 described five patients who underwent four-wall decompression through a microsurgical lateral approach to the orbit. Visual

apparent at least that the foregoing studies give a physiological clue to the diversity of sensory auras associated with epileptogenic foci in this part of the brain. ABLATION STUDIES Before considering the motor phenomena associated with stimulation of the hippocampal formation, a few words may be said about the effect of excisions that interrupt the normal flow of impulses between its afferent and efferent pathways. To date, experiments aimed at ablation of the hippocampus alone, 2, 5 or severing its projections by way of the fornix, 20 have revealed

previous reports regarding this hypothalamic target. 13 A target approximately 6.5 mm lateral to the intercommissural line, 3 mm below the intercommissural line, and 4.5 mm posterior to the AC was chosen and then, in the Cases 2 and 3, slightly adjusted to be 4 mm lateral to the fornix and 1 mm posterior to the fornix. Akin to the refinement of ventralis intermedius nucleus targeting in movement disorder DBS by reference to the lateral wall of the third ventricle, we found that LHA targeting could be improved by regional indirect targeting based on the fornix.

Surgical management of colloid cysts of the third ventricle: a single-institution comparison of endoscopic and microsurgical resection

deep within the brain, where they are intimately associated with the fornix and critical deep draining veins to which they are commonly adherent. Historically, they have been removed with transcranial microsurgery via an interhemispheric-transcallosal (IHTC) or transcortical-transventricular (TCTV) approach. The former has been favored due to concern for an increased likelihood of seizures following transcortical approaches, although reported data are somewhat anecdotal. 5 – 7 Open microsurgical approaches have a relatively high rate of complications in reported

, 35 A similar situation exists in the rat where macrophages and microglia are present after lesions of the fimbria-fornix. 32 In those animals, sprouting from the cholinergic system occurred in response to injury. 18, 32, 36 It has been postulated that nerve growth factor from reactive astrocytes (which are activated by interleukin-1 23, 33, 34, 39, 44, 46 released from microglia 1, 20, 21, 29 ) is responsible for sprouting of cholinergic fibers. Continuous infusion of exogenous nerve growth factor has a neuronotrophic effect on both noncholinergic and
