Falx and parasagittal meningiomas are common locations for meningiomas of the cranial vault. Many of these tumors are now discovered incidentally during cranial imaging for other reasons. Therefore, in the calculation of the risks and benefits of surgery it behooves the surgeon to do all he/she can to avoid surgical complications. This is a heavily experience based article based off the senior author’s experience with over 1200 intracranial meningiomas. We present three cases to illustrate some of the decision-making and techniques used to reduce complications in the management of these cases treated with an open operation.
