BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance imaging-guided laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) is an emerging minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of deep intracranial lesions. Insular lesions are challenging to treat because of the risk of damaging important surrounding structures. The precise knowledge of the neural structures that are at risk along the trajectory and during the ablation is essential to reduce associated complications. This study aims to describe the relevant anatomy of the anterior frontal LITT trajectory to the insular region by using sectional anatomy and fiber dissection technique. -
