Abstract

Cavernous malformations of the third ventricle are uncommon vascular lesions. Evidence suggests that cavernous malformations in this location might have a more aggressive natural history due to their risk of intraventricular hemorrhage and hydrocephalus.1 The gold standard of treatment is considered to be microsurgical gross total resection of the lesion. However, with progressive improvement in endoscopic capabilities, several authors have recently advocated for the role of minimally-invasive neuroendoscopy for resecting intraventricular cavernous malformations.2-4 In this timely intraoperative video, we demonstrate the gross total resection of a third ventricle cavernous malformation that presented with hemorrhage via a right-sided trans-frontal neuroendoscopic approach.
