Abstract

Neurovascular surgeons have been trying to find a solution to the problem of surgical invasiveness by applying minimally invasive keyhole approaches. A superciliary keyhole approach can be a reasonable alternative to a pterional approach for selected cases of small aneurysms arising at the supraclinoid internal carotid artery, A1 segment, anterior communicating artery, and M1 segment, including the middle cerebral artery bifurcation. The authors describe the surgical technique in detail in addition to the indications, limitations, and advantages of this minimally invasive keyhole approach.
