choroidal fissure
Acronym: chf
The term choroidal fissure refers to a cleft-like opening in the wall of the lateral ventricle that appears when the choroid plexus is dissected away. It extends from the interventricular foramen to the end of the temporal horn of the lateral ventricle. The part nearest the interventricular foramen is between the lateral edge of the fornix and the upper surface of the thalamus; in the inferior horn it is between the fimbria and the stria terminalis ( Gray-1918a ).
