Abstract

Intradurally and ventrally situated extramedullary or intramedullary lesions can be operated on from a dorsal, dorsolateral, ventrola- teral, or ventral approach. Disadvantages of the dorsal approach consist in the danger of damaging the spinal cord. The direct way to the ventral spinal cord is the ventral approach [2,3,7,14,15].
