Neuro-endoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that involves the use of an endoscope to visualize and treat conditions within the brain, ventricles, or subarachnoid space. The endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a light source and a camera at its tip, allowing neurosurgeons to access and navigate through narrow or deep structures in the brain. Neuro-endoscopy is used for diagnostic purposes as well as for treating various neurological conditions.


Visualization and Treatment: Neuro-endoscopy enables surgeons to visualize and access areas within the brain and surrounding structures.

Minimally Invasive: The procedure is considered minimally invasive compared to traditional open surgery, as it typically involves smaller incisions.

Indications for Neuro-endoscopy:

Ventricular Conditions: Neuro-endoscopy is commonly used for procedures involving the ventricular system, such as the third ventricle or lateral ventricles.

Cyst Removal: Neuro-endoscopy can be used to remove cysts or tumors located within the brain.

Hydrocephalus Treatment: In some cases of hydrocephalus (accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid), neuro-endoscopy may be employed to create a communication pathway or perform fenestration to relieve fluid buildup.

Tumor Biopsy: Neuro-endoscopy can be used to obtain biopsies of tumors within the brain.
