The Third Ventricular Region: Some Aspects of Third Ventricular Tumor Surgery

  • A. N. Konovalov
Part of the Contemporary Perspectives in Neurosurgery book series (COPENEU)


The topic of this volume—diencephalic lesions—is a very serious and difficult one. The surgery of lesions located in different parts of the diencephalon, especially of third ventricular tumors, is a subject of special interest at present. In the past few decades some important results have been achieved in this field.
