Abstract

Purpose: The proximal portion of the optic nerve is quite prone to injury at the entrance of the optic foramen by tumoral or traumatic pathologies. As a result, it is important to show which way and which part we can effectively and safely decompress the pathologies affecting the optic nerves. In this study, we compared the decompression of the proximal segment of the optic canal Likewise, we investigated the anatomy and histopathology of the opticocarotid region from below and above.
