BACKGROUND: Resection of enormous falcine meningiomas might be difficult as overlaying cortical mind is endangered in the course of the surgical method.
METHOD: We describe the endoscope-assisted contralateral paramedian method to massive left-falcine meningiomas to keep away from retraction of the ipsilateral skinny layer of eloquent mind cortex.
CONCLUSIONS: The contralateral paramedian method permits full tumor resection with endoscopic-assisted removing of tumor remnants within the superior side of the resection cavity, sparing any manipulation of ipsilateral mind tissue.
