Figure 3: Endoscopic technique showing the various steps of surgery; cortical opening (a and b) using bipolar and stab knife, (c) introduction of the speculum in the closed limb position, (d) insertion of the folded tubular retractor inside the open speculum, (e) tubular retractor attaining its normal shape, (f and g) various stages of hematoma evacuation, and (h–k) hemostasis. Please note that the brain is lying away from the dural margin (l) at end of surgery suggesting significant hematoma decompression
