OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the technique of stereotactic microsurgical endoscopic removal of intraventricular tumors or colloid cysts assisted by intraoperative computed tomography. METHODS We adapted a tubular "ventriculoport" for stereotactic insertion of an endoscope into the ventricle. This facilitated microsurgical resection of 14 intraventricular tumors or colloid cysts by use of intraoperative stereotactic microsurgical endoscopic removal of intraventricular tumors or colloid cysts… CONTINUE READING
