Intraventricular tumors appear in the brain’s ventricles, or hollow spaces, which are filled with a protective liquid called cerebrospinal fluid. These tumors can develop anywhere in the brain where ventricles exist. They frequently obstruct the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, placing pressure on surrounding brain tissue. This can lead to headaches, nausea, deterioration in mental health, visual disturbances and death.
Best in Care
The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by intraventricular tumors. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that identify and remove these tumors with immense accuracy. Located deep within the center of the brain, intraventricular tumors are difficult to reach using traditional surgical approaches, but minimally invasive techniques pinpoint affected tissue with millimeter accuracy. Recovery times are shorter, because no incision is made.
