The term endoscopic Neurosurgery is used basically for all procedures that are performed with the help of endoscopes. Endoscopic procedures may be performed purely endoscopic, for example for the treatment of occlusive hydrocephalus and cystic lesions or in combination with the operating microscope for example for the treatment of large tumors of the skull base or vascular lesions. The latter technique is named endoscope-assisted microsurgery (EAM). If endoscopes are used as the only optical tool but manipulations performed along the scope, it is referred to as endoscope-controlled microsurgery (ECM). This technique is recently more and more applied for transnasal skull base surgery.. ...

CSF diversion techniques: For the last 50 years the definitive treatment of PHH in these patients has remained the insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. Ventriculoperitoneal shunts in neonates have the highest complication rate and these complications, in turn, determine to a great extent the overall outcome. Subcutaneous reservoirs, subgaleal drains, and EVDs are additional means that have contributed to the better surgical management of hydrocephalus, but they are temporary measures. Neuroendoscopy is an important advance, but its role remains restricted. ETV has proven ineffective so far in the management of neonatal PHH. Some options for neuroendoscopic applications are the ventricular washouts for the removal of blood in the ventricles and the coagulation of the choroid plexus for the limited cases of slowly progressing communicating hydrocephalus (10, 68, 77 ...

Here we review the technical aspects of our experience with the neuroendoscopic bilateral nostril (binostril) transsphenoidal approach for pituitary adenomas. A total of 42 patients were treated in our hospital from September 2013 to December 2015. Total tumor resection was completed in 31 cases, nearly full resection was achieved in 9 cases, and partial resection was achieved in 2 cases. In most cases clinical symptoms were relieved after surgery. These included 18/22 cases with visual field and vision disorders; 19/25 cases with headaches; 11/15 cases where high baseline PRL returned to normal levels; 6/7 cases where elevated blood GH returned to normal levels; and 2/3 cases where elevated blood ACTH returned to normal levels after surgery ...
Objective: Neuroendoscopy is presently considered a minimally invasive surgical approach. Neuroendoscopic biopsy of tumours growing in the ventricle is considered a safe procedure. Despite wonderful magnification of the endoscope, due to the minimally surgical approach bleeding control and tumour ablation are harmful by usual tools. Most of the currently available laser systems in neurosurgery (Nd YAG, diode laser) have high peak energy and may create mechanical side effects in proximity to vital structures.. Methods: We have used a recently developed Tu diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser (Revolix, LISA laser products). The active laser material is thulium (Tu), emitting lightat wavelength of 2,0 micron, through one microfiber of 0,2 mm diameter. This small fibre can pass in the working channel, too. The energy by water can be absorbed without side effects. The laser can hit the tumor in near contact or targeting from short distance with limited penetration. We report our experience in 4 ...
Most of the patients with hydrocephalus do not have a colloid cyst. For those patients, the treatment is to place a shunt or tube that diverts the fluid from the ventricle to the abdomen. For some of these patients, a hole can be placed in the floor of the third ventricle. This allows the built up CSF in the ventricle to empty into the fluid spaces at the base of the brain where it can be absorbed. This procedure, called endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) can relieve the hydrocephalus without the need for a permanent shunt tube. The second video shows highlights from an ETV procedure ...

Patients will be randomized to either Eptacog alfa or saline. All patients included in the study will perform a CT scan within 3 hours before surgery, then immediately after surgery, and 18-30 hours after surgery. The hematoma volume will be evaluated by a multi-slice CT scan. All CT scan images will be sent to the Coordinating Center where the hematoma volume will be evaluated by a dedicated software by the same investigator who will be unaware of the treatment (investigator- blinded study). Before and after hematoma removal will be evaluated ECG, myocardiac enzymes, coagulation profile, CT scan (looking for ischemic events) and venous echodoppler ultrasound of lower extremities ...
Future Possibilities of Chemosensitivity Testing for Brain Tumors. Computer-assisted techniques, endoscopic methods and microsurgical robots will allow surgical removal of tumors to be even less invasive than it is at present. Radiation sensitizers- drugs which are incorporated into tumor cells may increase the efficacy of lower doses of radiation and reducing the short and long term side effects of radiation therapy. Stereotactic methods will make the delivery of radiation therapy to a defined tumor volume more precise. Direct interstitial delivery systems for chemotherapy may increase the efficacy and reduce the side effects. In vitro testing methods of chemotherapeutic agents against living cells cultured from a tumor sample may allow physicians to select specific chemotherapy agents for a specific tumor. In theory, this is similar to antibiotic sensitivity testing in bacterial cultures when treating infections. These methods have been tried with only a few reporting success. However, new ...

In the majority neurosurgical departments, neuroendoscopy is presently considered to be the method of choice in therapy of secondary hydrocephalus in children with posterior fossa tumour [3]. It is highly effective (up to 100%) when performed in patients with mesencephalic or tectal tumours and pineal region tumours. Endoscopy is preferred to ventricular-peritoneal shunt implantation in cases with obstructive hydrocephalus evoked by these tumours [10]. Since 1923, when Mixter first published the use of endoscopic third ventriculostomy, the neuroendoscopic surgery technique has evolved and indication spectrum expanded. Nowadays, endoscopic treatment is the most convenient therapeutic procedure in paediatric patients with obstructive hydrocephalus [11]. The benefits of the technique are clearly documented in statistical evaluations of large samples of patients where the bias resulting from diverse primary diagnoses (leading to the obstructive hydrocephalus) is limited [12]. Such studies also show ...

Image-guided endoscopic evacuation of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage.. Surg Neurol. 2008 May;69(5):441-6. Authors: Miller CM, Vespa P, Saver JL, Kidwell CS, Carmichael ST, Alger J, Frazee J, Starkman S, Liebeskind D, Nenov V, Elashoff R, Martin N. BACKGROUND: Spontaneous ICH is a devastating disease with high morbidity and mortality. Intracerebral hemorrhage lacks an effective medical or surgical treatment despite the acknowledged pathophysiologic benefits of achieved hemostasis and clot removal. Image-guided stereotactic endoscopic hematoma evacuation is a promising minimally invasive approach designed to limit operative injury and maximize hematoma removal. METHODS: A single-center randomized controlled trial was designed to assess the safety and efficacy of stereotactic hematoma evacuation compared to best medical management. Patients were randomized within 24 hours of hemorrhage in a 3:2 fashion to best medical management plus endoscopic hematoma evacuation or best medical management ...

Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is a surgical procedure for treatment of hydrocephalus in which an opening is created in the floor of the third ventricle using an endoscope placed within the ventricular system through a burr hole. This allows the cerebrospinal fluid to flow directly to the basal cisterns, bypassing the obstruction. Specifically, the opening is created in the translucent tuber cinereum on the third ventricular floor. The ETV procedure is used as an alternative to a cerebral shunt mainly to treat certain forms of noncommunicating obstructive hydrocephalus (such as aqueductal stenosis), but since the ETV was introduced as an accepted treatment modality the range of etiologies for which it is used has grown significantly. Whereas at first it was almost exclusively performed in patients with noncommunicating obstructive hydrocephalus (e.g. aqueductal stenosis or intracerebral tumor), in the present day patients with communicating obstructive hydrocephalus (e.g. post ...
Hydrocephalus is a condition that occurs when cerebrospinal fluid builds up in the brain, caused by abnormal formation of the brain before birth, head injury, hemorrhage, brain tumor, or infection. This build up puts pressure on your childs brain, which can cause problems with neurodevelopment and lead to cognitive dysfunction if left untreated. Our neurosurgeons use several advanced techniques to treat hydrocephalus:. A shunt, the most common method for treating hydrocephalus, is surgically implanted to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid from the ventricles of the brain to another area of the body-the abdomen, typically-where it will be absorbed by your childs body.. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) surgery eliminates the need for a shunt in children who have a normal cerebrospinal fluid drainage channel that is narrow or blocked. ETV is a rigid endoscopic procedure in which the neurosurgeon makes a small hole in the bottom of the brains third ventricle so the fluid can flow out and be ...
The Hydrocephalus Program at Nicklaus Childrens Hospital is a national leader in the care management of children with hydrocephalus. The program, which was one of the first in North American to use minimally invasive endoscopic techniques to treat premature babies with post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus, has among the nations longest experience with this method. For some patients, endoscopic third ventriculostomy with choroid plexus coagulation can offer a permanent resolution of hydrocephalus without the need for placement of a shunt.. The Hydrocephalus Program is under the leadership of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Nicklaus Childrens Hospital, part of the nationally recognized Nicklaus Childrens Brain Institute. The team of doctors and nurses has decades of experience caring for children with complex neurological disorders requiring surgery, and has championed pioneering and innovative techniques for managing children with epilepsy, brain tumors, spasticity and ...

Hydrocephalus in patients with achondroplasia is thought to be due to increased dural sinus venous pressure resulting from narrowing of the jugular foramen. In this setting, where hydrocephalus is presumed to be "vascular" in origin and therefore communicating, endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) would seem contraindicated. The authors describe 3 patients in whom ETV was successfully performed, resulting in MR imaging-documented decreases in ventricle size. The patients were 11 months, 33 months, and 13 years at the time of surgery. All patients had serial preoperative MR images demonstrating progressive hydrocephalus in a "triventricular" pattern with a small fourth ventricle but an open aqueduct. All patients had undergone suboccipital decompression for foramen magnum stenosis prior to the treatment of hydrocephalus. Preoperative retrograde venography revealed variable pressure gradients across the jugular foramen. It is postulated that the increase in intracranial venous pressure resulting ...
