abstract

  • Four patients with primary and recurrent craniopharyngiomas that were grossly cystic were managed by intermittent aspiration through an indwelling Ommaya reservoir apparatus. The technique is safe and provides a reasonable alternative for the amelioration of signs and symptoms when total extirpation of the tumor is impossible.
