METHODS: The study is based on a retrospective analysis of a continuously updated electronic database that includes patient history and radiological files. The success rate of the interventions is calculated. CONCLUSIONS: The underlying pathological condition was hydrocephalus of various origins. The success rate within patient groups is given and the factors leading to successful surgery are emphasized. Recommendations on indications for neuroendoscopic operations are discussed.
