Abstract

Introduction Two different approaches to fenestration, endoscopic and microsurgical, are in use for Sylvian arachnoid cysts (SACs), the most frequent among intracranial arachnoid cysts. We presented the clinical data and compared our results, with regard to technique and clinical success, with either microsurgical or neuroendoscopic fenestration of SACs.
