Anatomy of the ventricular system: Historical and morphological aspects
Keywords:Ventricular System, Anatomy, History, Lateral Ventricles, Third Ventricle, Neuroendoscopy
From the first description of the human ventricular system occurred in the 3rd century B.C. to modern neuronavegated endoscopy, neurosurgical knowledge evolved exponentially allowing safer approaches to the ventricular system. The present paper describes the historical aspects of ventricular system anatomy and its macroscopic and endoscopic anatomy from the Lateral ventricles to the third ventricle, describing in detail its structure and anatomical relationships.
