How the Neuroendoport Works
During the procedure, a small tube about the circumference of a dime is inserted as a channel to guide tumor removal. An endoscope is inserted into the Neuroendoport, providing a powerful light source and excellent images of the tumor or lesion. The entire surgical procedure is performed through the Neuroendoport, minimizing trauma to the brain and surrounding nerve tissue.
What the Neuroendoport Treats
The Neuroendoport technique is suitable for tumors within the substance of the brain (the parenchyma) as well as tumors within the fluid-filled spaces of the brain (the ventricles). Metastases from cancer, gliomas, and a variety of tumors within the ventricles are often good candidates for the Neuroendoport approach.
Benefits of the Neuroendoport
Neuroendoport Surgery offers patients a number of benefits that may improve their quality of life, including minimal scarring, fewer side effects and complications, and faster recovery times than with traditional surgery. Because the entire procedure is performed within a dime-size channel through the brain, surgeons are able to minimize trauma to surrounding brain tissue and nerves.
