Abstract

The authors make an overview about the use of stereotactic techniques in the management of lateral ventricle tumors. If stereotactic techniques are not in the foreground for the management of lateral ventricle tumors, stereotactic biopsies can be very useful in case of atypical, clinical or radiological presentation of the tumors and radiosurgery can help in case of evolution or re-evolution of tumors after resection. In these cases, stereotactic procedures are very safe. Modern technical evolutions allow the optimization of the stereotactic procedure but also to mix robotic with endoscopic techniques in order to offer new surgical perspectives.
