Recently neuroendoscopic third ventriculostomy has become a well-established procedure for the treatment of noncommunicating hydrocephalus. However, morphological changes of the third ventricular floor can make endoscopic fenestration technically difficult, and increase the risk of injury to the basilar artery and perforators. The risk is especially high in patients with basilar artery bifurcation aneurysms, in whom aneurysm exclusion should precede treatment of hydrocephalus. If definitive… CONTINUE READING
