Neuroendoscopy is an ever-evolving frontier in neurosurgery and its use has spanned decades with safe and efficacious treatment in a variety of cranial procedures. There are areas of technology that are broadening the cranial use of the endoscope. Here we discuss the foundations of cranial neuroendoscopy in the areas of cerebrospinal fluid diversion and tumor biopsy and discuss the recent advancements in the areas of craniosynostosis, endonasal surgery, ventriculo-cisternal approaches, brain parenchymal surgery and skull base surgery. We highlight the ongoing evolution of neuroendoscopic technology and consider the potential future applications that will help to revolutionize the current standards in endoscopy and its use inn neurosurgical practice.
