Complications of ventricular endoscopy

Roberta Rehder, Alan R. Cohen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Advances in optics, miniaturization and surgical technique have provided a means for neurosurgeons to approach selected conditions with reduced parenchymal exposure and trauma. Neuroendoscopy can be highly effective as a minimally invasive procedure, but it is not risk free. The incidence of preventable complications can be reduced by selecting the appropriate candidate for the procedure, having the optimal instruments available and recognizing potential pitfalls in advance.
