Abstract

HAVING ENCOUNTERED A number of thick-walled or mobile symptomatic intracranial cysts that have resisted stereotactic puncture with standard blunt-ended ventricular catheters, the authors have designed a cyst puncture catheter that has a number of features helpful in overcoming this problem. The catheter and its use are described, and examples of difficult-to-puncture cysts are given.
