Lamina terminalis fenestration is a method used to reduce hydrocephalus risk secondary to subarachnoid haemorrhage in cerebral aneurysm surgery. The aim of our article is to report our clinical experience in these patients and examine the short-term results of this procedure.

Materials and Methods:

We evaluated 10 patients with high-grade subarachnoid hemorrhage who underwent surgical clipping for cerebral aneurysm between 2014 and 2015 in our clinic.


Hydrocephalus developed in three of the 10 patients. One of these three patients had hydrocephalus in the preoperative period. In addition, hydrocephalus regressed in he postoperative period in three patients with hydrocephalus preoperatively.


Lamina terminalis fenestration is an easy and effective procedure that can be applied to provide cerebral relaxation before surgical clipping and reduce the risk of developing hydrocephalus after clipping.
