Experimental: Methotrexate / Etoposide Infusion
12 infusions of intraventricular Methotrexate and 15 infusions of intraventricular Etoposide into implanted fourth ventricle catheter/Ommaya reservoir following surgical catheter placement into fourth ventricle. Methotrexate will be infused twice weekly for 6 weeks and etoposide will be infused 5 times a week on weeks 1, 3 , and 5.
Methotrexate 4 mg into fourth ventricle of the brain via the Ommaya Reservoir 2 days a week for 6 weeks. Each patient will have 12 infusions.
Other Name: Trexall, Rasuvo
Etoposide 1 mg into fourth ventricle of the brain via the Ommaya Reservoir 5 days a week for weeks 1, 3, and 5. Each patient will have 15 infusions.
Other Name: VePesid, Toposar, Etopophos
Procedure: Ommaya Reservoir
Surgical catheter placement into the fourth ventricle of the brain
- Number of patients with grade 3 through grade 5 new neurological adverse events that are related to study drug, graded according to NCI CTCAE Version 4.0 [ Time Frame: 4 months ]New neurological deficit defined as new cranial neuropathy, nystagmus, change in mental status, motor deficit or cerebellar finding (ataxia, dysmetria, dysdiadochokinesis) that is attributed by treating physicians to intraventricular methotrexate and etoposide infusions. Primary endpoint for basis of safety monitoring is acute toxicity occurring at any time within 30 days of receiving the intraventricular methotrexate and etoposide infusion. Rate of acute toxicity monitored using Bayesian method of Thall and Sung. Method of Kaplan and Meier used to estimate unadjusted distributions of time to a neurological deficit and progression free survival time and summary statistic of all variable computed and tabulated
