What applications has a neuroendoscopy?

Neuroendoscopy applies primarily in the treatment of hydrocephalus and certain brain tumors, especially those located in the brain ventricles and the subarachnoid space, but also in tumors affecting the pituitary and some locations in the skull base.


What advantages does a neuroendoscopy?

The fundamental advantage relate to patient recovery, faster due to the less invasive surgical approach; but also the quality of vision, as these techniques can bring our vision to injury and amplify it.

Postoperative this technique is generally faster and less painful than with conventional techniques, due to reduced invasiveness involved.
