Abstract

The Liliequist membrane is a critical membrane located at the base of the brain separating the supratentorial from the infratentorial cisterns. The advantages of Liliequist membrane fenestration as a critical part of the pterional trans-Sylvian approach for ruptured anterior circulation aneurysm clipping is not well established. We demonstrated that the fundamental role of Liliequist membrane fenestration is brain relaxation through the egress of CSF that is not usually gained from other modalities (e.g., placement of a lumbar drain, fenestration of lamina terminalis) in this specific setting.
