Abstract

COLLOID CYSTS OFTEN cause cerebrospinal fluid pathway obstruction, which results in ventricular enlargement that provides sufficient space for endoscopy. Because of further improvement of endoscopic instrumentation and hemostasis, colloid cysts often can be resected completely via an endoscopic approach. This article describes our endoscopic technique as developed for the removal of colloid cysts located in the third ventricle.
