BACKGROUND: Posttraumatic hydrocephalus (PTH) and posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) were previously considered not suitable for neuroendoscopic treatment. New hydrocephalus theories support possible successful neuroendoscopy in such patients. METHODS: This study presents the results of neuroendoscopy in PTH and PHH with a background analysis. From 130 hydrocephalic patients after neuroendoscopic surgeries, 35 cases with PTH (11 patients) or PHH (24 patients - 9 acute, 10 subacute, 5 chronic) were found...

BACKGROUND: Hydrocephalus remains an important aspect of neurosurgical care and in select circumstances, the endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) continues to remain an important treatment. In our initial experience of ETV using the commercially available plastic ventricular ports we found them both restrictive and expensive. Following this experience, we developed a stainless steel ventricular access port (VAP). We present our novel method of access involving this non-disposable ventricular port...

Continuous irrigation is an important adjunct for successful intraventricular endoscopy, particularly for complex cases. It allows better visualization by washing out blood and debris, improves navigation by expanding the ventricles, and assists with tissue dissection. A method of irrigation delivery using a centrifugal pump designed originally for cardiac surgery is presented. The BioMedicus centrifugal pump has the desirable ability to deliver a continuous laminar flow of fluid that excludes air from the system...

BACKGROUND: Total removal of craniopharyngiomas is burdened by high morbidity. In cases of a cystic or mixed craniopharyngioma, when the symptoms are caused by the cystic component of the tumor, a less invasive surgical approach aiming at cyst drainage may be recommended. Here we report our experience with intraventricular neuroendoscopy, describing our clear-cut surgical technique, and analyzing results in the context of literature data. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical data of 8 consecutive adult patients affected by cystic or mixed craniopharyngioma that were treated with intraventricular neuroendoscopy at our Institution in the last decade...

BACKGROUND: The subependymal vascularization of the cerebral ventricles has been described in anatomical studies on human specimens. Its identification in vivo during neuroendoscopic navigation could have anatomical interest and may lead to a safer ventricular navigation, also avoiding unexpected bleeding. The traditional endoscopic visualization allows the certain identification of only the main vessels. In this study we describe the features of the subependymal vascular network (SEVN) enhanced by sodium fluorescein (SF) angiography...

BACKGROUND: The benefits of neuroendoscopy in the pathological diagnosis of intra- and paraventricular tumors have already been shown in many neurosurgical studies. However, most authors agree that neuroendoscopic biopsies are not infrequently inconclusive due to small or inadequate samples, prompting the need for new diagnostic strategies. OBJECTIVE: To describe a technique not previously reported in the literature, combining neuroendoscopy with angiofluorescein guidance for the pathological diagnosis of intra- and paraventricular tumors...

Neurovascular surgery is a broad and challenging, yet exciting field within neurologic surgery. The neurovascular surgeon must be meticulous; because the brain and spinal cord are unforgiving to ischemic insults. Along with the pressures of this demanding subspecialty comes the potential to help patients recover from potentially devastating pathology to go on and lead normal, healthy lives. Several intraoperative imaging modalities are available to help maximize treatment success while reducing risk. This article reviews each of these modalities, including digital subtraction angiography, fluorescence angiography, Doppler ultrasonography, laser Doppler, laser speckle contrast imaging, neuronavigation, and neuroendoscopy...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, neuroendoscopy has been used as a method for treating intracerebral hemorrhages (ICHs). However, the efficacy and safety of neuroendoscopic surgery is still controversial compared with that of craniotomy. Our aim was to compare the outcomes of neuroendoscopic surgery and craniotomy in patients with supratentorial hypertensive ICH using a meta-analysis. METHODS: We searched on PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials to identify relevant studies in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines...

Skull base chordoma is a rare tumor arising from embryonic remnants of the notochord with invasive potential. Due to the destruction of osseous landmarks and invasion of surrounding structures, surgical resection is challenging. The authors explored the clinical value of a multimodal neuronavigation system in skull base chordoma resection using a neuroendoscope. Between January 2012 and January 2016, the authors utilized neuroendoscopy to excise skull base chordoma in 93 patients. The authors performed 45 operations assisted by multimodal neuronavigation (neuronavigation group) and 48 without intraoperative imaging guidance (control group)...

Neuroendoscopy processes can cause severe traumatic brain injury. Existing therapeutic methods, such as neural stem cell transplantation and osthole have not been proven effective. Therefore, there is an emerging need on the development of new techniques for the treatment of brain injuries. In this study we propose to combine the above stem cell based methods and then evaluate the efficiency and accuracy of the new method. Mice were randomly divided into four groups: group 1 (brain injury alone); group 2 (osthole); group 3 (stem cell transplantation); and group 4 (osthole combined with stem cell transplantation)...
