Pediatric CSF Disorders Program


Pediatric Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Disorders Program

Endoscopic Treatments

We treat all conditions related to abnormalities in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, including hydrocephalus. Treatments include use of the endoscope (a small camera with an attached light source) for making connections between obstructed ventricles; an endoscope may also be used to create a new pathway for flow of cerebrospinal fluid, known as an endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). Endoscopes are also used on patients with previously placed shunts. For patients with prior abdominal surgery, pediatric general surgeons assist with laparoscopic catheter placement into the peritoneal space.
