Intraventricular Tumors Treatment

Years of experience in Intraventricular Tumor Surgery

At IBS Hospital, we specialize in the precise surgical treatment of intraventricular tumors. Our experienced surgeons utilize state-of-the-art techniques to ensure optimal outcomes, focusing on patient-centered care and recovery. 

What are Intraventricular Tumors?

Intraventricular tumors, as the name suggests, originate within the brain’s ventricles, which are hollow cavities filled with cerebrospinal fluid. Also known as ventricular tumors, they are generally non-malignant. These tumors can grow in size, potentially restricting the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by obstructing the ventricles. There are several different types of intraventricular tumors, including colloid cysts, central neurocytomas, meningiomas, and choroid plexus tumors.

What are the symptoms of Intraventricular Tumors?

The most common symptoms associated with Intraventricular Tumors to be aware of include:

  • Severe and persistent headaches
  • Confusion
  • Speech and language difficulties
  • Vision problems
  • Memory loss
  • Weakness or loss of sensation in the arms and legs
  • Seizures
What are the causes of Intraventricular Tumors?

Intraventricular tumors originate from glial cells. The exact cause is unknown, but abnormal genetic mutations are thought to play a role. These mutations disrupt normal cell division, causing cells to multiply uncontrollably and form a mass known as a tumor. Typically, the immune system identifies and eliminates abnormal cells. However, tumors release chemicals that prevent the patient’s immune system from targeting them.

How are Intraventricular Tumors diagnosed?

Common diagnostic methods for detecting Intraventricular Tumors include:

  • CT scan (Computerized Tomography)
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
  • Additionally, a biopsy may be recommended to assess the tumor and determine its nature.
How are Intraventricular Tumors treated at IBS Hospital?

The treatment of intraventricular tumors is determined by various factors, including the tumor’s type, grade, location, and size. The primary goal of treatment is to alleviate brain pressure by draining cerebrospinal fluid. Surgical resection may be performed to carefully remove the tumor while preserving the surrounding tissues and structures. At IBS Hospital, we provide a comprehensive range of advanced techniques and innovative approaches to support our treatments. Our experts develop tailored treatment plans for our patients, considering their unique needs and requirements.
