ABSTRACT

The brain is enclosed by its own bony helmet, the skull. The space inside the skull is divided into left/right halves by the vertical falx cerebri (between the cerebral hemispheres) and from top/bottom by the tentorium cerebelli. The corpus callosum passes from side-to-side through a central opening in the falx. The brainstem passes from top-to-bottom through an opening in the tentorium the hiatus. Brain herniation subtypes: Trans tentorial (down >> up) Alar (across the sphenoid wing/ridge) Subfalcial F. magnum The most common type of herniation is a combination subfalcial and downward transtorial, caused by a unilateral mass inside or outside of on cerebral hemisphere, that compresses the CNN-3 and cause a dilated non-reactive pupil on the same side as the mass. <hr> http://rad.usuhs.mil/rad/herniation/brain_herniation_2008.html <hr> http://rad.usuhs.mil/rad/herniation/index.html http://rad.usuhs.mil/rad/herniation/herniation.html <hr> UCSF - http://missinglink.ucsf.edu/lm/ids_104_cns_injury/Herniation/Herniation.htm
