what is Neuroendoscopy?

Neuroendoscopy is a minimally invasive form of brain surgery that allows surgeons to reach parts of the brain that cannot be accessed through traditional surgery. It also allows for the removal of tumors without the need for a large incision in the skull; instead, tumors are removed through the mouth, nose or a small window through the skull.


Neuroendoscopy is performed using an endoscope, which is a small, flexible tube with a camera and a small set of surgical instruments attached. This procedure can be used to remove a tissue sample for further testing (a biopsy) or to remove part or all of a brain tumor.

Why you have it

You might have a neuroendoscopy to:

*. take a sample of tumour in or near the fluid filled chambers of the brain (ventricles)

*. take a sample of the fluid around the brain (cerebrospinal fluid or CSF)

When fluid builds up around the brain (hydrocephalus) it increases the pressure in the brain. Your doctor can use neuroendoscopy to drain the fluid.


A small hole is made between two fluid filled cavities to allow the cerespinal fluid (CSF) to circulate and relieve pressure. This procedure is called a third ventriculostomy.
