It administers CAR-T therapy locally in the brain, either by direct injection to the tumor site or through infusion into the cerebrospinal fluid through the ventricular system or both.
According to the classical hypothesis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow dynamics, CSF is produced within the ventricular system and it circulates toward the subarachnoid space where it is absorbed and a blockage between ventricular and subarachnoid spaces would cause an increase of intraventricular pressure and dilatation of brain ventricles (5).
There was increased extra axial CSF space along both cerebral hemisphere with mildly dilated ventricular system representing mild cerebral atrophy (Figure-3)

In particular, the dependent portions of the subarachnoid space and ventricular system should be carefully examined, as these areas may reveal subtle levels of SAH that have settled in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
A basic skill that trainee neurosurgeons need to gain early in their training is an appreciation of the ventricular system in the brain, and how to cope in the event of an emergency.
The topics include mereotopology and other region-based theories of space, a qualitative trajectory calculus to reason about moving point objects, a region-based ontology of the brain ventricular system and its relation to schizophrenia, representing and recognizing temporal patterns of activities in smart environments, and topical and spatio-temporal search over distributed online databases.
