Abstract

The authors report the experiences of transcondylar approaches for five meningiomas in the low clivus and foramen magnum. These tumors were removed via transcondylar approach. The results show that there was no operative mortality and minimal operative morbidity;one patient had temporary oropharyngeal dysfunction. This approach offers the best direct vision of the ventral structures to low clivus and foramen magnum without additional retraction or manipulation of the brain stem.
