The authors report a series of 40 patients treated by endoscopic neurosurgery. It includes 31 cases of obstructive hydrocephalus, 4 paraventricular or intraventricular CSF cysts, 3 cases of multiloculated hydrocephalus, one suprasellar arachnoid cyst and one cystic astrocytoma with mural tumor nodule. Third ventriculostomy is the most frequent indication of the endoscopic neurosurgery, which is very useful also for performing fenestration of CSF cysts and multiloculated hydrocephalus. The surgical endoscopic techniques in the different above mentioned pathologies are exposed. The criteria for patient selection, the clinical results and the postoperative radiological findings, that confirm the patency of the fenestration, are discussed.

Abstract

The authors report a series of 40 patients treated by endoscopic neurosurgery. It includes 31 cases of obstructive hydrocephalus, 4 paraventricular or intraventricular CSF cysts, 3 cases of multiloculated hydrocephalus, one suprasellar arachnoid cyst and one cystic astrocytoma with mural tumor nodule. Third ventriculostomy is the most frequent indication of the endoscopic neurosurgery, which is very useful also for performing fenestration of CSF cysts and multiloculated hydrocephalus. The surgical endoscopic techniques in the different above mentioned pathologies are exposed. The criteria for patient selection, the clinical results and the postoperative radiological findings, that confirm the patency of the fenestration, are discussed.
