Lateral supraorbital approach

see also Contralateral supraorbital approach.

The lateral supraorbital approach is a minimally invasive modification of the standard pterional approach.

It was extensively and successfully used by Juha Hernesniemi, 1) 2) 3) 4) it avoids the approach through the sylvian fissure (SF) and irrespective of the SF anatomy approaches the aneurysms immediately subfrontally. The SF is only partially open.
