In the patients with aqueductal stenosis or obstruction, intraaqueductal CSF flow is reduced or fully absent, so endoscopic fenestration of the third ventricle floor provides an alternative quasi-physiological CSF flow pathway to the subarachnoid spaces through the interpeduncular cistern and downwards, resulting in dispersed and minimized pressure gradient on midline brain structures, surrounding cerebral aqueduct [5].
Fifty eight patients (37 males and 21 females, mean age 27 years, age range from 8 to 47 years) were referred to our center for dynamic MRI examination after the ETV procedure from three different neurosurgery institutions, where they were hospitalized for the treatment of obstructive hydrocephalus due to the non-tumorous stenosis/obstruction of cerebral aqueduct.
