Abstract

Six patients presented with either entrapped fourth ventricles or noncommunicating cerebrospinal fluid collections of the posterior fossa requiring drainage. These collections were treated with shunt systems whose proximal catheter was placed into the fourth ventricle via a coronal burr hole using an endoscope guided by Eleckta's ISG Viewing Wand(R). The technique and its advantages are described as are the complications and early outcomes.
