Cisternotomy and Liliequist’s membrane fenestration as a surgical treatment for idiopathic intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri): a case report

Opening the basal subarachnoid cistern (cisternotomy) is used during many microsurgical operations to relax the brain by removing or diverting cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Recently, cisternotomy has been used in patients with traumatic brain injury to improve outcomes due to its ability to reduce intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral edema by diverting CSF.
