Efficacy and Safety of the Rotational Technique for Endoscopic Trans-foraminal Excision of Colloid Cysts of the Third Ventricle.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Neurosurgeon, Department of Neurosurgery, Ibn Sina Hospital, Kuwait.

Background: The main criticism of endoscopic excision of colloid cysts of the third ventricle is the decreased ability to completely resect the cyst wall, thus increasing the risk of recurrence. The extent of resection varies widely across the endoscopic series, and is largely influenced by the surgical technique. We report the results of the rotational technique for endoscopic trans-foraminal excision of colloid cysts in a series of consecutive patients. Read More

A unique finding of cavum velum interpositum colloid-like cyst and literature review of a commonplace lesion in an uncommon place.

Int J Gen Med 2018 16;11:301-305. Epub 2018 Jul 16.

Diagnostic Radiology Department, Dammam Central Hospital, Dammam, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia.

Colloid cysts typically reside within the area of the anterior third ventricle, in the proximity of the foramen of Monro. Although they are considered to commonly localize in various parts of the cerebrum, they are exceedingly rare outside the ventricular system and rarely occur within the velum interpositum. We have reported here a rare case of a velum interpositum colloid-like cyst in a 23-year-old man, who presented to our clinic with temporary binocular strabismus, which he had been experiencing for the previous year.

[Rathke cysts, craniopharyngioma, and colloid cysts : What are the differences between these pathologies?]

Authors:
R Eymann M Kiefer

Radiologe 2018 Jul;58(7):646-652

Universität des Saarlandes, Homburg/Saar, Deutschland.

Clinical Issue: Headache is the most common symptom of colloid cysts, Rathke cysts, and craniopharyngioma due to their location in the midline, being extra-axial and typically presenting in the parasellar region.

Therapeutic Problems: Although these tumors are generally considered benign, each has its typical characteristics defined by its location and histology. These individual characteristics define whether surgery is necessary at all and if so, the preferred surgical approach and resection's totality. Read More

Pancreas ductal adenocarcinoma with cystic features on cross-sectional imaging: radiologic-pathologic correlation.

Diagn Interv Radiol 2018 Jan-Feb;24(1):5-11

Department of Internal Medicine, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea; Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Cancer Center, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea; Cancer Research Institute, The Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Most pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDAs) show solid growth pattern, but ductal adenocarcinomas may demonstrate intratumoral cystic appearance or accompany peritumoral non-neoplastic cystic lesions, thus mimicking cystic pancreatic tumors on imaging studies. The histopathologic findings for PDA with cystic feature are divided into neoplastic and non-neoplastic cysts. Neoplastic cystic changes include large-duct type cysts (microcystic appearance), neoplastic mucin cysts (macrocystic appearance), colloid carcinomas (mucinous noncystic adenocarcinomas), and degenerative cystic change usually caused by hemorrhagic necrosis of tumor.

Use of Tubular Retractor for Resection of Deep-Seated Cerebral Tumors and Colloid Cysts: Single Surgeon Experience and Review of the Literature.

World Neurosurg 2018 Apr 15;112:e50-e60. Epub 2017 Dec 15.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida, USA.

Introduction: Brain retraction is often required to develop a surgical corridor during the resection of deep-seated intracranial lesions. Traditional blade retractors distribute pressure asymmetrically and may case local tissue damage. Tubular retractors minimize this pitfall by distributing pressure evenly, which has been shown to translate to significant safety and efficacy data. Read More

Colloid cysts are benign lesions, found in the anterior part of the roof of the third ventricle. A PubMED search of literature was performed to identify the evidence on different treatment options and surgical approaches for removal of colloid cysts. Evidence on endoscopic versus microsurgical resection of colloid cysts showed that microsurgical approach had significantly higher rates of gross total resection, lower recurrence rate and lower re-operation rate.

Acquired Chiari I Malformation with Syringomyelia Secondary to Colloid Cyst with Hydrocephalus-Case Report and Review of Literature.

World Neurosurg 2017 Dec 9;108:995.e1-995.e4. Epub 2017 Sep 9.

Department of Neurosurgery, NRI Academy of Sciences, Chinakakani, Mangalagiri, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Acquired Chiari malformation and associated syringomyelia have been previously described following lumbar puncture/drainage, lumboperitoneal shunts, and spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leakage. In addition to these etiologies, space-occupying lesions such as meningiomas, epidermoid cysts, medulloblastomas, and arachnoid cysts are rare causes of acquired Chiari malformation and syringomyelia. We report a rare case of colloid cyst with hydrocephalus causing secondary Chiari malformation with syringomyelia. Read More

Xanthogranulomatous colloid cyst of the third ventricle: Alter your surgical strategy.

Neuroradiol J 2018 Feb 30;31(1):47-49. Epub 2017 Jun 30.

1 Department of Neurological Sciences, Christian Medical College, India.

Colloid cysts are the most common benign neoplasms of the anterior third ventricle, mostly located at the level of the foramen of Monro and can often manifest as sudden onset headache or loss of consciousness. These cysts often have a well-defined cyst wall, mucinous or watery intracystic fluid and have a fairly good plane with the surrounding parenchyma. Occasionally, intracystic haemorrhage can lead to xanthogranulomatous inflammatory changes within the cyst resulting in focal thickening of the cyst wall and adhesion to the surrounding structures.

Spontaneous resolution of colloid cyst of the third ventricle: Implications for management.

Asian J Neurosurg 2017 Apr-Jun;12(2):203-206

Division of Neurosurgery, Toronto Western Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

While there is little controversy regarding the treatment of symptomatic colloid cysts, the optimal management of "incidentally" detected and asymptomatic colloid cyst remains unclear. The age of the patient, duration and significance of symptoms related to the cyst, size and radiological characteristics of the cyst and the presence of hydrocephalus are all factors to be considered before considering surgery. While surgery most often provides good results in the majority of patients, complications do occur. Read More

Anterior trans-frontal endoscopic resection of third-ventricle colloid cyst: how I do it.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2017 06 4;159(6):1049-1052. Epub 2017 Apr 4.

Neurosurgery-Neurotraumatology Unit, University Hospital of Parma, Parma, Italy.

Background: The endoscopic technique has been recognised as a viable and safe alternative to microsurgery for the treatment of third-ventricle colloid cyst. However, the standard precoronal endoscopic approach does not always provide an adequate visualisation of the attachment of the cyst to the velum interpositum. Using a more anterior approach, it is easier to reach the roof of the cyst and its possible adherences with the tela choroidea. Read More

Faculty of Medicine, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran.

Colloid cysts are benign slow-growing cystic lesions located on the roof of the third ventricle that usually present with symptoms related to gradual rise of intracranial pressure. They mostly remain asymptomatic and sometimes grow progressively and cause diverse symptoms associated with increased intracranial pressure such as headache, diplopia, and sixth cranial nerve palsy. Here we report a 47-year-old female who presented to the emergency department with acute severe headache and nausea/vomiting. Read More
