Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense hidrocefaoia Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: The challenge is identifying those patients which will benefit from shunting. Our objective was to study the prognostic value of height, as a variable related to hydrostatic pressure, when an identical shunt system is used.

All cases were shunted by means of a ventricle-peritoneal system with a mmH 2 O opening pressure valve. It is published every 2 months 6 issues per year.


This is sometimes confusingly referred to as secondary normal pressure hydrocephalus 3. This item has received. Brain Injury Association of America.

Conclusions In our series opening valve pressure was a constant mmHg and we could consequently focus on the effect of hydrostatic pressure height. Although symptom improvement following a high-volume lumbar puncture is helpful in confirming the diagnosis, it is a specific but insensitive test; therefore, additional investigation is needed if initial interventions are not helpful.

A second theory suggests it results from weakening of the ventricular wall due to periventricular white matter ischemic damage 3.

Nuclear medicine is less important in diagnosing NPH. She reports occasional bladder incontinence, although she attributes the problem to slowness related to her gait issues. Results of lumbar puncture reveal normal CSF studies and opening pressure.

The normottensa cause remains controversial. The patient most likely has normal pressure hidrocefaliq NPH based on the clinical presentation and imaging studies.

En algunas ocasiones, la hidrocefalia puede diagnosticarse al momento del nacimiento o antes. This article is focused on idiopathic cases.

Per idrocefalo normoteso s’intende un tipo di idrocefalo comunicante, in cui l’aumento della pressione intracranicadovuto all’accumularsi del liquido cefalorachidianodiventa stabile, e la formazione di liquor si equilibra con l’assorbimento; la pressione intracranica gradualmente diminuisce ma mantiene ancora hidrovefalia livello lievemente elevato.

Treatment of normal pressure hydrocephalus, once the diagnosis is established, is with CSF shunting, usually a ventriculoperitoneal shunt VP shunt.

Research Alert Institute, C. Anthropometric, clinical, radiological and pressure variables were registered, as well as delay for treatment, improvement and complications. Our objective was to study the prognostic value of height, as a variable related to hydrostatic pressure, when an identical shunt system is used.
