Abstract

In the-pediatric Neurosurgical Service of the Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, flexible endoscopic III ventriculostomy has been applied in children with noncommunicating hydrocephalus and periaqueductal/ pineal tumor. We modified the technique to allow enlargement of-the opening of the III ventricular floor. The use of an Atlas Wire Stone Extractor for this purpose is described.
