OBJECT Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) has become a well-accepted option for obstructive hydrocephalus. However, standard ventriculostomy at the floor of the third ventricle might not be feasible under certain conditions. Here, the authors report in detail on their initial experience with an alternative option of endoscopic ventriculostomy through the lamina terminalis via a transventricular route. METHODS Endoscopic third ventriculostomy through the lamina terminalis from a… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Endoscopic fenestration of the lamina terminalis: alternatives to the classic third ventriculostomy.
TLDR
This radiologic and cadaveric study evaluated the feasibility of performing a transventricular lamina terminalis (LT) fenestration using rigid and flexible endoscopes and two approaches, anterior and posterior to the coronal suture and highlighted the strengths and limitations of the flexible endoscope compared with the rigid endoscope.
Efficacy and safety of endoscopic transventricular lamina terminalis fenestration for hydrocephalus.
TLDR
Endoscopic transventricular transforaminal LT fenestration with flexible neuroendoscopy is feasible with a low incidence of complications and is a good alternative to standard ETV.
Anterior third ventriculostomy: an endoscopic variation on a theme.
TLDR
The current authors, a highly qualified and experienced group of endoscopic neurosurgeons, have explored the potential use of an endoscopic transventricular route for fenestrating the lamina terminalis and conclude that the method is safe and effective.
Interhemispheric Endoscopic Fenestration of the Lamina Terminalis through a Single Frontal Burr Hole.
TLDR
IEFLT is a potential alternative to the classic endoscopic third ventriculostomy and a simpler alternative toThe subfrontal EFLT, although surgical maneuverability is still limited due to the size of the probe in relation to the narrow surgical corridor.
Endoscopic transventricular transaqueductal Magendie and Luschka foraminoplasty for hydrocephalus.
TLDR
Flexible neuroendoscopic transventricular transforaminal Magendie and Luschka foraminoplasty is feasible and safe and may prove to be viable alternatives to standard ETV and VP shunt in appropriate patients.
Stented endoscopic third ventriculostomy—indications and results
TLDR
ETV is a feasible and safe alternative procedure which when performed with an appropriate trajectory allows treatment of occlusive hydrocephalus with altered anatomy of the third ventricular floor and has been demonstrated to resolve or improve clinical and radiological signs of disturbed CSF circulation.
Microscopic supraciliary approach for terminal laminotomy for treatment of hydrocephalus: a preliminary report of eight cases.
TLDR
Microsurgical third ventriculo-cisternostomy through a supraciliary might be a reasonable alternative to endoscopicThird ventriculostomy for treatment of hydrocephalus, however, a more sample size with controlled subjects is required to draw conclusions and comparisons with other techniques of treatment of Hydrocephalus.
Distribution and Determinants of Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) at a Specialized Hospital in Dhaka City
TLDR
Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is a safe and successful procedure in the management obstructive hydrocephalus and is used as an alternative to a cerebral shunt surgery, according to the study subjects.

THIRD VENTRICULOSTOMY THROUGH THE FENESTRATED LAMINA TERMINALIS DURING MICRONEUROSURGICAL CLIPPING OF INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSMS: AN ALTERNATIVE TO CONVENTIONAL VENTRICULOSTOMY
TLDR
Ventriculostomy via the fenestrated LT performed during aneurysm surgery is a practical way for later CSF removal and intracranial pressure monitoring and can be suggested as a safe alternative to a classical ventriculostomies.
Third Ventriculostomy for Treatment of Hydrocephalus: Results of 271 Procedures
TLDR
The authors present their experience with ETV in the treatment of hydrocephalus after application of this technique for 13 years, and conclude that ETV represents a safe and reliable procedure for Hydrocephalus treatment.
The role of endoscopic third ventriculostomy in the treatment of triventricular hydrocephalus seen in children with achondroplasia.
TLDR
ETVs may constitute an alternative for ventriculoperitoneal shunt therapy as the treatment of choice for patients with achondroplasia who have triventricular hydrocephalus and clinical symptoms, however, attention should be paid to the shape of the floor of the third ventricle, however.
Microscopic stucture of the lamina terminalis: implications for microsurgical third ventriculostomy.
TLDR
The results of the present microscopic study confirm the opinion that the inferior segment of the LT is the most convenient place for safe incision, and its thinnest middle part immediately above the optic recess is composed mainly of gliotic tissue.
Endoscopic third ventriculostomy in obstructive hydrocephalus due to giant basilar artery aneurysm.
TLDR
The endoscopic ventriculostomy was proven to be a successful treatment option in obstructive hydrocephalus even if it is caused by untreated giant BA aneurysm.
Subfrontal endoscopic fenestration of lamina terminalis: an anatomical study.
TLDR
The endoscopic anatomy of the LT region and its fenestration through such an approach are discussed and the clinical potential use of this alternative third ventriculostomy is pointed out.
Computer-assisted stereotactic third ventriculostomy in the management of noncommunicating hydrocephalus.
TLDR
Stereotactic TV is a safe and effective way of re-establishing normal cerebrospinal fluid flow dynamics in selected cases of obstructive hydrocephalus without the need for further shunting.
Fenestration of the Lamina Terminalis as a Valuable Adjunct in Aneurysm Surgery
TLDR
FLT was associated with statistically significant decreases in shunting rates, incidence of vasospasm, and better outcomes, and is recommended for routine use in patients with Fisher Grade 3 anterior communicating artery aneurysmal SAH.
Microsurgical fenestration of the lamina terminalis reduces the incidence of shunt-dependent hydrocephalus after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.
TLDR
Fenestration of the lamina terminalis appears to be associated with a decreased incidence of shunt-dependent hydrocephalus of more than 80% after aSAH, and this straightforward microsurgical maneuver should be performed whenever possible during aneurysm surgery.
Ventriculo-cisternostomy for stenosis of the aqueduct of sylvius

TLDR
A simple and benign ventriculo-cisternostomy technique is proposed for alleviation of the hydrocephalus by aqueduct stenosis and it is desirable that the 3rd ventricle showed be sufficiently enlarged to avoid any risk of secondary occlusion or of hypothalamic damage.
