Endoscopic treatment of colloid cysts of the third ventricle

M. Samy Abdou, Alan Cohen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The surgical technique for the endoscopic evacuation of colloid cysts of the third ventricle in 13 patients is described. The authors conclude that endoscopic resection of these lesions is a useful addition to the current surgical repertoire and a viable alternative to stereotactic aspiration or open craniotomy.
