Anatomy of the Lateral Ventricle
Mersin Üniversitesi, Tıp Fakültesi, Nöroşirürji Anabilim Dalı, Mersin, Türkiye The lateral ventricles are deep cavities in the centre of the brain. Each lateral ventricle has five parts: frontal, temporal, and occipital horns; the body and the atrium. Each of these sections has a lateral wall, a medial wall, a floor and a roof. We studied the microsurgical anatomy of the lateral ventricles and their relationships with other important neurovascular structures.
