This course will review relevant surgical neuroanatomy using 3-D stereoscopic projection. The areas covered will be surgical anatomy and approaches to the cerebellum and fourth ventricle; microsurgical and endoscopic approaches to the cerebellopontine angle and beyond; posterior circulation surgical anatomy; transpetrosal approaches; surgical anatomy and approaches to the jugular foramen; far lateral and transcondylar approaches; and endoscopic endonasal transclival approaches. There will be an emphasis on illustrating the importance of surgical neuroanatomy for clinical practice and approach selection with surgical cases and 3-D video case presentations.

Learning Objectives: After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
