Abstract: Introduction: Meningiomas are tumors that develop in the meninges region and can be located both in the cerebral convexities, close to the venous sinuses, and in the posterior fossa. Furthermore, they account for 30% of all existing intracranial neoplasms and predominantly affect females. Among these, falcine meningiomas (MF) and parafalcine (PM) originate from the cerebral sickle, accounting for about 9% of intracranial meningiomas. Objectives: Due to the high relevance of MF and MP, further studies are needed to identify the incidence of neurological disorders associated with the surgical approach. Thus, the following issue was raised: "What are the possible neurological implications arising from different surgical approaches?" allowing for the strengthening of data that corroborate the reduction of complications. Methodology: The study consists of a retrospective literature review; aiming to anayze neurological problems resulted from different therapeutic interventions. For this purpose, the Pubmed, SciELO, Medline and medical literature databases were used. Results: Based on the studies, it was observed that the use of certain surgical approaches enables a better clinical outcome, however, the location, extension and vascularization must be taken into account, as the great challenge is to perform these procedures while minimizing neurological complications. Conclusion: In summary, this research points out the risks of neurological damage associated with different approaches. Therefore, there is a need for new tumor description schemes from a surgical perspective that facilitate the choice of a therapeutic approach, thus promoting a better prognosis for the patient.
