OBJECTIVE Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is an alternative to shunt placement in occlusive hydrocephalus. The negative impact of anatomic anomalies and variants on ETV have been sporadically reported but not yet investigated systematically. Therefore, the objectives of the present study are 1) to evaluate the frequency of endoscopic anatomic anomalies of the ventricular system, 2) to define their potential to complicate the procedure and to compromise the surgical results, and 3) to… CONTINUE READING
