Ventriculoscopy in Diencephalic and Sellar Neoplasm Resection
The surgical resection of neoplasms of the diencephalon and sellar regions remains one of the most serious problems in neurosurgery. The success of an operation depends upon exact diagnosis: The size of a neoplasm, its location and extent, and its relationship to the ventricular system determine the choice of surgical approach. The relationship of a tumor to the third ventricular floor is important in choosing a transcallosal and/or a subfrontal approach for maximal tumor removal with maximum brain tissue protection.
