Current indications for intracranial and intraventricular endoscopy are described in depth, through detailed chapters, stellar videos, professional animations, and exquisite illustrations. The authors share their clinical expertise on procedures ranging from endoscopic third ventriculostomy to transventricular approach of the fourth ventricle. Cover to cover, this book details the differences, alternatives, advantages, and limitations of the flexible neuroendoscope.
This hands-on learning tool will enable neurosurgeons to perform endoscopy of the ventricles and basal cisterns for exploratory purposes and conditions such as hydrocephalus, congenital aqueductal stenosis, tumors, hypothalamic hamartoma, arachnoid cysts, and neurocysticercosis. Additional topics include endoscopic-assisted microvascular decompression and aneurysm surgery, fluorescence, complications, anesthesia, utilization in developing countries, and future trends.
