Abstract With the availability of better endoscopes, improved lighting and increased instrumentation, the use of ventriculoscopy and ventriculostomy in the management of hydrocephalus is becoming increasingly more common. Neurosurgeons recognized the potential for endoscopic surgery early in this century, but were frustrated in many of their attempts at treatment due to the poor quality of the instruments available. Nevertheless, much progress has been made, and the stage was set for better results with modern instrument design. This paper reviews the history of endoscopes in neurosurgery and ponders the direction these instruments will take us in the near future.
