Supratentorial cavernomas account for 75% of all cavernous malformations. These lesions become symptomatic as a result of hemorrhage, seizures, or mass effect. Patients with symptomatic supratentorial cavernomas are candidates for surgical resection. In recent years, resecting cavernous malformations has become safer. The procedure is straightforward utilizing neuronavigation and, when necessary, skull base techniques. This article reviews the basic surgical management of supratentorial cavernous malformations, reflecting the treatment strategies used at our institution. 2002, Elsevier Science (USA).
