BACKGROUND: Although anterior temporal lobectomy may be a definitive surgical treatment for epileptic patients with mesial temporal sclerosis, it often results in verbal, visual, and cognitive dysfunction. Studies have consistently reported the advantages of selective procedures compared with a standard anterior temporal lobectomy, mainly in terms of neuropsychological outcomes. OBJECTIVE: To describe a new technique to perform a selective amygdalohippocampectomy (SAH) through a transpalpebral approach with endoscopic assistance...

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...

A hypothalamic hamartoma consists of hyperplastic heterotopic tissue growing in a disorganized fashion. These lesions occur in about one per 50,000 to 100,000 people. Hypothalamic hamartomas can cause intrinsic epileptogenesis leading to gelastic seizures. Surrounding cortical structures may also develop secondary epileptogenesis. Persistent seizures caused by hypothalamic hamartomas can be debilitating and result in significant cognitive and behavioral impairment. Early recognition and treatment is important in controlling seizures and in preventing further cognitive deterioration...

OBJECTIVE: A neuroendoscopic biopsy has become common for the diagnosis of ventricular tumors. However, its utility in patients with germ cell tumors (GCTs) has not been well discussed. We examined the usefulness and pitfalls of neuroendoscopic biopsies of intraventricular GCTs at a single institution. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 21 consecutive patients diagnosed with GCT by a neuroendoscopic biopsy of the ventricular region via the lateral ventricle. We examined the localization of tumors, histological diagnoses using biopsies, surgical complications, and consistency of the diagnosis at the latest follow-up...

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)...

Herein, safe and reliable neuroendoscopic biopsy via an extremely narrow foramen of Monro (ENFM) for a non-hydrocephalic patient with hypothalamic and pineal region tumors was successfully applied. A 17-year-old boy presented with hypothalamic manifestations attributed to hypothalamic and pineal region tumors. Small ventricles were seen. Intraoperatively, to advance different diameter steerable fiberscopes via ENFM, the third ventricle was flushed to induce a moment increase in the intraventricular pressure with subsequent dilatation of FM...

Successful treatment of hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) can result in the resolution of its sequelae including epilepsy and rage attacks. Risks and morbidity of open surgical management of this lesion have motivated the development of laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) as a less invasive treatment approach to the disease. Although overall morbidity and risk would appear to be lower, complications related to LITT therapy have been reported, and the longer-term follow-up that is now possible after initial experience helps address the question of whether LITT provides equivalent efficacy compared to other treatment options...

5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) fluorescence-guided surgery is widely used for detection and planning of resection of malignant gliomas and other brain tumors. However, no reports have described 5-ALA fluorescence-guided surgery or direct visualization of germ cell tumors. Here, we report two cases of germ cell tumors in which a positive 5-ALA fluorescent signal was visualized with a neuroendoscope. Both cases had a tumor in the pineal region that was associated with hydrocephalus. The patients underwent surgery after administration of 5-ALA...
