Case report

E ndoscopic third ventriculostomy is considered to be an effective and safe treatment modality for obstructive hydrocephalus. The success rate of ETV in third ventricle hydrocephalus is reported to be ~ 75–80%. 4 , 6 Various complications related to intracranial endoscopy in general and to ETV in particular have been reported, of which arterial hemorrhages from prepontine cisternal vessels are considered the most serious. 3 , 22 A distinction can be made between perioperative complications and postoperative failure of the ETV. The latter can be further

E ndoscopic third ventriculostomy has rapidly gained acceptance as the treatment of choice for hydrocephalus in children. 6 , 7 , 16 , 21 , 24 The success of ETV is dependant primarily on the causes of the hydrocephalus 17 and is ideally suited to obstructive causes such as tumors 11 , 16 , 20 , 24 and aqueduct stenosis. 17 , 23 Endoscopic third ventriculostomy has traditionally been the preserve of pediatric neurosurgeons, and the authors of most studies in the literature report either exclusively pediatric cohorts 6 , 7 , 24 or mixed groups of

) of tuber cinereum region before perforation. Two patients with acute hydrocephalus (Cases 22 and 23; Table 1 ) were eliminated from subsequent analysis due to inadequate assessment of the MBs either on endoscopic viewing (Case 22, leptomeningeal carcinomatosis with multiple metastatic nodules occupying the area of the tuber cinereum) or on both the ETV and preoperative MR imaging (Case 23, large suprasellar arachnoid cyst). In the latter case, however, TVF fenestration could be performed uneventfully. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy procedures were rated as
