dura of the anterior third of the superior
sagittal sinus have massive bleeding, which was
controlled by several means. The dura was opened
parallel to the base of the skull. The tumor was
seen in the left frontal area. Debulking of
tumor using bipolar coagulation and piece-meal
resection. It was rich with feeders and inside
the meningioma, there was arterial network. The
tumor had good cleavage, which was followed and
the tumor turned to be falx meningioma with
matrix in the anterior third of the falx. All
the feeders were coagulated and sharp dissection
was carried on. All the running arterial
bysiders were preserved and dissected off the
tumor. Total resection of the meningioma was
achieved and strict heamostasis was achieved.

The giant tumor can mimic the origin. This falx
meningioma was reaching the olfactory groove
deep down that, it resembled the olfactory
groove meningioma. The approach was
designed for this kind of tumor.
Thanks to the wide exposure, the other kind of
tumor could be handled with the same approach.
