Slide 2 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Background: Treatment of brain abscess involves different therapeutic approaches like craniotomy, burr hole aspiration with or without insertion of a drain, stereotactic aspiration, medical management , endoscopic aspiration and stereo tactic endoscopic aspiration are described.

Slide 4 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Background: Endoscopic aspiration is a minimally invasive technique which is safe and effective (Longatti et al 2006, Fritsch et al 1997, Hellwig et al 1994). Superior to stereotactic technique due to direct visualization, completeness of aspiration can be assessed & per operative bleeding can be controlled We are reporting our results of endoscopic approach of 25 patients.
Slide 5 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Material and methods: Prospective study of 25 brain abscesses between Jan 2004 to June 2007. All brain abscesses included. Exclusion: Small abscesses of less than 1.5 cms & multilocculated abscesses. Gabb 6 degree rigid endoscope was used. Repeat CT scan within 7 & 30 days after the surgery.
Slide 6 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Material and methods: Injection cefotaxim 1 gm, vancomycin 1 gm & metrogyl 500 gms 8 hourly used in adults pending sensitivity reports. Antibiotics according to culture & sensitivity were started later on. Intravenous antibiotics 3 weeks and oral antibiotic for another 4 weeks. Dexamethasone in all cases, tapered as rapidly as possible & given for 10-15 days.
Slide 7 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Procedure: Burr hole site to give straight trajectory to abscess cavity. Brain cannula was inserted to confirm site of abscess, only about 5 ml pus aspirated & the sheath was introduced to puncture the abscess cavity. Vision was poor initially but improved later on. Pus aspirated using infant feeding tube / suction cannula from working channel. Contents of cavity were also removed using normal saline irrigation. Out flow channel was blocked intermittently allowing cavity to be filled up and then all the contents were aspirated gently. This procedure was repeated many times till return became clear. Abscess membrane was left in situ.

Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Results: Prospective of 25 patients of brain abscesses treated between Jan 2004 to June 2007. Age from 6 to 58 years.

Slide 12 :

Slide 13 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Results: Operating time ranged from 30-60 minutes [average 42 minutes]. All the patients recovered completely except one who died [GCS 3]. There was no recurrence in any case.
Slide 14 :
Incidence & type of Microorganism in Brain abscess
Slide 15 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Results: There was no complication related to the procedure. Stay in Neurosurgery unit ranged from 5-7 days as compared to 11 in conventional open surgery. Mastoid surgery was done as a separate procedure after endoscopic surgery but in the same hospital stay. Follow-up 6 and 48 months.

Slide 19 :
Endoscopic treatment of brain abscess Conclusion: Endoscopic aspiration of brain abscess appears to be a safe and effective alternative method of treatment. There is direct visualization of abscess cavity, completeness of aspiration can be assessed and per operative bleeding can be controlled
