The Third Ventricular Region: Lesions of the Third Ventricle and the Surrounding Structures

  • Vinko V. Dolenc
Part of the Contemporary Perspectives in Neurosurgery book series (COPENEU)


In the period from 1983 through 1987 a series of 95 patients were treated at our Neurosurgery Department for lesions in and/or around the third ventricle. In the majority of patients, disturbances or even a complete blockage of the passage of CSF accounted for the first typical symptoms and signs of hydrocephalus.
