Interventricular foramen (of Monro)

The foramen of Monro (also known as the interventricular foramen) is part of the ventricular system and the connection between the third ventricle and the lateral ventricles.

It allows for the flow of CSF, and therefore, if blocked or effaced, causes reduction in CSF flow from the lateral ventricles despite no associated reduction in CSF production from the choroid plexus.
