About the offer

Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) surgery is a minimally invasive procedure to treat hydrocephalus by relieving cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) accumulation in the brain. The goal is to alleviate symptoms, restore normal CSF flow, and improve the patient's quality of life. Ventriculostomy surgery requires a small incision and an endoscope, reducing surgical trauma and scarring. It results in fewer complications and faster recovery. ETV does not require shunt implantation, with less shunt malfunction and infection risk. Successful brain surgery can significantly relieve hydrocephalus symptoms and improve the patient's well-being. However, not all patients are suitable candidates for ETV. A thorough evaluation by a neurosurgeon, including tests such as MRI, helps to determine the best treatment approach. The treatment involves an inpatient stay, comprehensive examinations, and consultations to assess the patient's suitability for the procedure. It includes diagnostic and laboratory tests and consultations with neurosurgeons and anesthesiologists. In addition, preoperative preparation, third ventriculostomy surgery, and postoperative care are performed. During the surgery, the neurosurgeon creates a small hole in the floor of the third ventricle using an endoscope, allowing CSF to flow freely and relieve pressure within the brain. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and requires hospitalization and nursing services. After surgery, patients receive recommendations for ongoing care and monitoring.
