OBJECT The optimal therapy of arachnoid cysts is controversial. In symptomatic extraventricular arachnoid cysts, fenestration into the basal cisterns is the gold standard. If this is not feasible, shunt placement is frequently performed although another endoscopic option is available. METHODS Between March 1997 and June 2006, 12 endoscopic cystoventriculostomies were performed for the treatment of arachnoid cysts in 11 patients (4 male and 7 female patients, mean age 52 years [range 14-71… CONTINUE READING
