The neuroendoscopic procedures applied inpatients with isolated compartments, including IUH, LV, IFV, IRF, and multiloculated ventricles were foramen of Monro reconstruction, septostomy, septal wall removal, cyst wall fenestration, fourth ventriculostomy, and endoscopic shunt placement. It was found that the operative goal, creating a state of arrested hydrocephalus, could be achieved by communicating the trapped space to the rest of the ventricular system, opening the ventricular isolation… CONTINUE READING
