Third ventricular tumor tissue was simultaneously delivered through the lamina terminalis as well as from below the chiasm. Placement of a 2.3-mm neuroendoscope into the lateral or third ventricle assisted in monitoring the delivery of the intraventricular component of the tumor.

tuberculum sellae. The rate of tumor recurrence, time to recurrence, time of last follow-up, survival, and disease-free survival were collected and analyzed for the entire cohort with subgroup analysis. Parametric data were expressed as means ± standard deviations and compared using the Student ttest. Proportional data were compared using the chi-square or Fisher exact test. The RFS curves were generated using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared between children with and without residual calcifications using the log-rank test. All statistics were completed with SPSS
