OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to analyze changes in intracranial pressure (ICP) after endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) performed in children affected by noncommunicating hydrocephalus. METHODS ICP was continuously recorded for an average of 7 days in 64 children who underwent 68 ETVs for obstructive triventricular hydrocephalus of various etiology. In the first group (44 children), ETV was performed as the primary treatment; in the second group (20 children), the patients presented… CONTINUE READING
