The amygdala and uncus are located close to important neurovascular structures. We describe a safe technique for resection of amygdala and uncus. Under general anesthesia, the patient is positioned supine, with the head rotated approximately 20 degrees to the unoperated side and slightly extended. By using a trans-anterior T1 subpial approach, the inferior horn of the lateral ventricle is opened, and hippocampectomy is performed. We treat an imaginary plane formed by the inferior circular sulcus of the insula, the endorhinal sulcus, and the inferior choroidal point as the upper border of amygdalar resection. After confirming the position of the inferior choroidal point, the border between the temporal stem and uncus is exposed from anterior to posterior. This border is continuous with the endorhinal sulcus. By exposing the endorhinal sulcus, the anterior choroidal artery and optic tract can be visualized. The amygdala is disconnected through complete exposure of the endorhinal sulcus to the inferior choroidal point. After the lateral side of the uncus is disconnected, the amygdala and uncus are removed en bloc. Since April 2014, we have used the described procedure to remove amygdalar–uncal lesions in 15 patients. The lesion was completely removed in all cases without complications. Histological specimens were obtained in all cases. Our procedure enables safe and complete removal of amygdalar–uncal lesions. Imagining the plane formed by the inferior circular sulcus, inferior choroidal point, and endorhinal sulcus is essential for complete removal of the lesion and for preserving important structures.
