Purpose: To assess the usefulness of intraoperative Ultrasound (ioUS) and Echo-Color-Doppler (ECD) for the surgical removal of a specific deep-sited lesion. Methods: Case report of a woman underwent surgery of a third ventricle colloid cystremoval. Results: The ioUS technique depicted the deep intraventricular lesion and all theanatomical structures surrounding the lesion; helping us defining the best trajectory forthe safest surgical removal. Conclusion: In our experience ioUS and ECD have demonstrated to be a reliable anduseful intraoperative tool in neurosurgery, not only for superficial tumors but for deepintraventicular lesions as well.
