The choice of Harvey Cushing to depart basic surgical procedure and focus on the baby box of valuable anxious process surgical procedure was once looking back a landmark within the heritage of neurosurgery. His focused paintings, and likewise that of his colleague Walter Dandy, originated with the needs of either pioneers to appreciate surgical anatomy and neurophysiology. the elemental wisdom and surgical techni­ ques that they supplied turned the normal of excellence for a number of generations of neurosurgeons; loads in order that the final trust was once that the surgical concepts couldn't be more suitable upon. Twenty-five to thirty years in the past microtechniques began appearing in a number of surgical learn facilities, they have been then progressively utilized to scientific neurosurgery and feature contributed to a brand new point of realizing in surgical anatomy and neurophysiology. we're now lucky to have a brand new normal of morbidity and mortality within the surgical operation of intrathecal aneurysms, angiomas, and tumors. it's been stated that microneurosurgery used to be attaining its limits, particularly whilst treating lesions in and round the cavernous sinus and cranium base; these lesions infamous for involvement of the dural and extradural cubicles, with a bent to infiltrate adjoining nerves and blood vessels. the risks of uncontrollable hemorrhage from the basal sinuses and post-operative CSF rhinorrhea seemed unsurmountable. The lateral facets of the petro-clival area were of curiosity to a couple pioneering ENT surgeons and neurosurgeons however the cavernous sinus in such a lot respects has remained the ultimate unconquered summit.

Of all the triangles (anteromedial, paramedial, Parkinson's, anterolateral) shown in this figure, the lateral triangle, confined between V2, V3 and the bone between the foramen rotundum and foramen ovaie, is the smallest one.

The Vth nerve together with the GG is elevated thereby exposing the lateral loop. In this figure, the entire course of the ICA from the foramen lacerum to the PCP, that is, from the lateral to the medial loop, can be traced. Since during surgery the Vth nerve cannot be elevated, different segments of the ICA must be approached through different triangles 57 Middle cranial fossa subregion leA (PL) GPN VI TA IV III PR DR leA (AL) Posterolateral (Glasscock's) triangle The greater superficial petrosal nerve (medial border), the posterior aspect of the GG and V3 (anterior border), and the line between the foramen spinosum and the arcuate eminence of the petrous bone (posterior border) [10].
