    INTRODUCTION: Two main surgical treatments for hydrocephalus exist: endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) and ventriculoperitoneal shunting. ETV is favorable as it is minimally invasive as well as provides for a decreased risk of infection, blockage and over-drainage. To date, however, the...

    Purpose: Surgery for children in developing nations is challenging. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is an important surgical treatment for childhood hydrocephalus and has been performed in developing nations, but with lower success rates than in developed nations. It is not known if the...
