The Basal Subarachnoid Cisterns: Surgical and Anatomical Considerations.
The basilar subarachnoid cisterns are expansions of the subarachnoid space and transmit cranial nerves and intracranial vessels. Providing neurosurgeons with key concepts, anatomical landmarks, and techniques can result in safer procedures and better patient outcomes. In this review, we discuss the major basilar subarachnoid cisterns including their embryology, history, anatomical descriptions, and use during surgical approaches.
