This page was last updated on May 9th, 2017

The cerebral hemisphere is gently and gradually retracted away from the falx.

Exposure of the corpus callosum: The right frontal lobe is retracted away from the falx. The pericallosal arteries are identified and mobilized. The corpus callosum may be incised between the pericallosal arteries or on either side of the pair for a length of 2–3 cm.

The lateral ventricle is then entered.
