P.050 NICO-assisted neuroendoscopic management of enlarging subependymal giant cell astrocytoma in tuberous sclerosis complex: a case report

  • A Dakson (a1) and P McNeely (a1)
Abstract

Background: Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome classically associated with mental disability, seizure disorder and adenoma sebaceum, among other anomalies. One of the major causes of mortality and morbidity in adults is the exclusive occurrence of subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA) which responds in at least 35% of cases to everolimus, mTOR inhibitor. However, drug treatment is associated with 33% rate of adverse events and requires long-term treatment Methods: In this report, we present a case of 49-year old female with TSC and a left enlarging SEGA that was approached endoscopically in order to minimize morbidity associated with open surgical approaches. Results: The use of NICO Myriad system is described in this case to achieve successful tumor debulking without post-operative neurologic morbidity. Conclusions: This report reveals the value of minimally invasive neuroendoscopic techniques in the management of challenging intraventricular tumors while avoiding injury to crucial deep venous structures.
