Abstract

Objective: Radiologic criteria for a successful endoscopic third ventriculostomy are not clearly defined and there is an ongoing need for determining simplest and strongest radiological criteria for this purpose. This paper aims to determine the easiest radiological parameter related to surgical outcome
