Superior Perspective of the Lateral Ventricles

Surgical Correlation


Superior Perspective of the Lateral Ventricles.  The lateral ventricle has been opened on each side to demonstrate its internal anatomy.  The head of the caudate nucleus protrudes prominently from the ventrolateral wall of the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle.   In the lateral wall and floor of the body of the lateral ventricle can be seen the body of the caudate and the thalamus, respectively.  A prominent tuft of choroid plexus can be seen bilaterally running anteriorly along the floor of the ventricle from the atrium to the foramen of Monro.
