Vascular Lesions in the Sellar Region
Aneurysms in the cavernous sinus region produce mechanical changes which affect the cranial nerves contained within the confines of the venous sinus, producing the symptom complex known as the superior orbital fissure syndrome. The size of the aneurysm frequently exceeds 25 mm, and therefore these aneurysms are often giant in nature. Parkinson (1973) reported the direct approach to the sinus with the aid of cardiac standstill. Dolenc (1985) reported on the approach to aneurysms within the cavernous sinus through an extradural route. We present our experience with aneurysms in the cavernous sinus region treated through an intradural approach.
