This medical illustration shows a conceptual view of third ventriculostomy. Relevant anatomy and their relationships, instrumentation, and anatomical landmarks are included.
I had an honor of observing this procedure first-hand in the OR. I enjoyed watching videos through the neuroendoscope. The anatomy I was familiar with was new again from a whole new perspective. Showing the anatomy of the enlarged foramen of Monro from the point of view of the neuroendoscope was a unique challenge. Using the videos and medical resources, I recreated the conceptual view of the procedure that shows the pathology and the general procedural steps.
