The neuroendoscopy is a discipline that includes a number of minimally invasive techniques. Involves the introduction of an optical system through small incisions, through which certain surgeries performed on the nervous system. With this system it is possible to remove tumors and treat types of hydrocephalus.
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.
How is a postoperative neuroendoscopy?
Postoperative this technique is generally faster and less painful than with conventional techniques, due to reduced invasiveness involved.
