OBJECT Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is the most common parasitic infestation of the central nervous system worldwide. In patients presenting with acute hydrocephalus due to intraventricular NCC, surgery is the only option. Still, there is no consensus regarding the optimal surgical strategy, although neuroendoscopic excision is a promising method. However, the literature regarding the use of this modality in fourth ventricular NCC is scarce. The authors describe a series of patients with fourth… Expand

Endoscopic Management of Fourth Ventricle Neurocysticercosis: Description of the New Technique in a Case Series of 5 Cases and Review of the Literature.
TLDR
It is concluded that the endoscopic approach is safe, simple, cost-effective, and allows minimally invasive removal of the fourth ventricle cyst and treatment of hydrocephalus without any morbidity. Expand
Endoscopic transaqueductal removal of fourth ventricular neurocysticercosis: report of three cases.
TLDR
Endoscopic transaqueductal removal of the fourth ventricular cysticercosis with a flexible neuroendoscope should be recommended as the optimal choice of the disease due to its minimal invasion, fewer complications, shorter length of stay and cheaper treatment costs. Expand
Endoscopic Excision of Intraventricular Neurocysticercosis Cyst with an Angiocatheter: A Retrospective Analysis
TLDR
Neuroendoscopy, being a single burr hole technique successfully providing internal CSF diversion and cyst removal, is the treatment modality of choice for IVNCC. Expand
Emergency Neuroendoscopic Management of Third Ventricular Neurocysticercosis Cyst Presented with Bruns Syndrome : Report of Two Cases and Review of Literature
TLDR
The clinical features, intra operative endoscopic findings and role of endoscopy in emergency surgery for NCC with acute hydrocephalus are discussed and the only reliable tool for diagnosis of NCC is by neuroimaging with CT or MRI. Expand
Endoscopic intervention for the fourth ventricular neurocysticercal cyst: What should be the optimum therapeutic approach?
TLDR
Relieving the acute symptomatic hydrocephalus by endoscopic internal CSF diversion (ETV) should be the primary therapeutic goal. Expand
Endoscopic Management of Intraventricular Neurocysticercosis.
TLDR
Endoscopic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diversion in cases of intraventricular NCC is feasible and associated with high success rate, and usually produces a long-term cure. Expand
Endoscopic intervention for intraventricular neurocysticercal cyst: Challenges and outcome analysis from a single institute experience
TLDR
Endoscopic management of IVNCC is a safe and effective management option, avoiding an indwelling shunt system and endoscopic third ventriculostomy should be considered for patients with IVN CC and hydrocephalus. Expand
Management of Trapped Fourth Ventricle in Patient with Cerebral and Spinal Neurocysticercosis
TLDR
This patient exhibited a subacute thoracic myelopathy and acute deterioration from a trapped fourth ventricle (TFV) from aqueductal and fourth ventricular outflow occlusion and improved following surgery without extraoccular dysfunction. Expand
What is the utility of postoperative antihelminthic therapy after resection for intraventricular neurocysticercosis?
TLDR
A typical case in which complete resection was possible is presented and the evidence supporting the use of postoperative oral antihelminthic therapy is explored, assuming the risk to be low and the potential benefit meaningful. Expand

TLDR
A case of surgically corrected acute hydrocephalus in a recent Haitian emigrant child due to a third ventricular neurocysticercal cyst complex is presented and endoscope-assisted en bloc removal, together with hydraulic maneuvers facilitating the removal of the intact cyst are described. Expand

Endoscopic management of supratentorial ventricular neurocysticercosis: case series and review of the literature.
TLDR
The ease of performing septostomies and third ventriculostomie in conjunction with cyst removal makes these procedures appealing and practical for most cases of ventricular cysticercosis. Expand
Neuro-endoscopic management of intraventricular neurocysticercosis (NCC)
TLDR
Neuro-endoscopic surgery is an effective treatment modality for patients with intraventricular NCC that effectively restores CSF flow and is capable of removing cysts completely or partially from accessible locations causing mass effect. Expand
ENDOSCOPIC TRANSAQUEDUCTAL REMOVAL OF FOURTH VENTRICULAR NEUROCYSTICERCOSIS WITH AN ANGIOGRAPHIC CATHETER
TLDR
Transaqueductal removal of an intra-fourth ventricular cyst along with endoscopic third ventriculostomy with a rigid endoscope and catheter is an effective treatment and obviates the need for posterior cranial fossa exploration. Expand
Endoscopic management of cysticercal cysts within the lateral and third ventricles.
TLDR
Endoscopic removal of third and lateral ventricle cysticercal cysts, combined with a third ventriculostomy or septum pellucidotomy in selected cases, is an effective treatment in patients with hydrocephalus and should be considered the primary treatment for this condition. Expand

TLDR
An extensive review of the literature on IVNCC has been prepared, with the goal of providing the reader with the information necessary to diagnose and treat this complex and potentially fatal disease in a timely and effective manner. Expand
Results of surgical treatment of neurocysticercosis in 69 cases.
TLDR
The authors conclude that placement of CSF shunts is indicated in the treatment of hydrocephalus, and cyst removal is indicated only when the cyst exhibits tumor-like behavior. Expand
Imaging features and surgery-related outcomes in intraventricular neurocysticercosis.
TLDR
A retrospective review of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging characteristics and surgery-related outcomes may improve management strategies of neurocysticercosis and propose a treatment algorithm based on patient symptoms, cyst location, and MR imaging Gd enhancement characteristics. Expand

TLDR
Endoscopic neurosurgery is a minimally invasive technique enabling removal of intraventricular cysticercal cysts from all locations, avoiding major craniotomies/posterior fossa explorations and shunts. Expand

TLDR
In properly selected patients, the endoscopic removal of cysticercal cysts located within the fourth ventricle should be considered as the primary treatment for this condition. Expand
