Surgery by Arno Fried, MD, at Hackensack University Medical Center

This is a microsurgical video clip of removal of a third ventricle tumor in a teenage boy. The boy presented with severe headaches and papilledema. The mass is located at the foramen of monro in the third ventricle. The approach is via a craniotomy and through the corpus callosum, into the lateral ventricle. After dissecting the deep neurovascular structures off the mass, it is delivered from the third ventricle into the lateral ventricle and then taken out completely. the fornix, which plays a role in memory and the deep veins of the brain are separated from the mass as the initial steps of the dissection. The boy made a complete recovery and his scans remain clean, now 4 years later
