  • Ventricular tumors are excised using both microscope and endoscope as the viewing device. Excision of these tumors requires corticectomy. After these corticectomies, brain has tendency to fall because of CSF drainage. Currently available retractor systems are fixed and thus can be traumatic. On the other hand few systems that require small corticectomy need stereotactic or navigation system aid. These all methods and equipment are costly. Our simple method of using a cylindrical channel… CONTINUE READING
