Abstract
Surgery of tentorial dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVF) associated with large ectatic vein remains challenging due to the intimate neurovascular relationships in the incisural space. Interruption of the arterialized vein requires a good knowledge of the regional anatomy and a precise preoperative evaluation.
We describe the key steps extreme lateral supracerebellar infratentorial (ELSI) approach for tentorial DAVF with a video illustration. The surgical anatomy is described along with the advantages and limitations of this approach.
In cases of tentorial DAVF where the foot of the arterialized vein is located in the infratentorial compartment, ELSI offers good surgical exposure and outcomes.
