View of the Basal Surface of the Brain

Surgical Correlation


View of the basal surface of the brain. The parahippocampal gyrus is dissected to expose the temporal horn. The posterolateral choroidal artery enters the temporal horn through the choroid fissure to irrigate the choroid plexus and then it travels to the atrium, where it anastomoses with branches of the posteromedial choroid artery and anterior choroidal artery. 1, P1 segment; 2, oculomotor nerve; 3, P2A segment; 4, anterior temporal artery; 5, hippocampal artery; 6, P2P segment; 7, P3 segment; 8, posterolateral choroidal artery; 9, dentate gyrus; 10, temporal horn.
