    The article studies the relationship between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation changes in chronic hydrocephalus and levels of microtubule-associated protein, Tau, in CSF and brain. According to the authors, initial findings suggest that CSF circulation may play a physiologically significant...

    We report the case of an iatrogenic tension pneumothorax related to the placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt, followed by pneumocephalus. The patient was pending cranioplasty and shunt placement after decompressive craniectomy for acute subdural hematoma and posttraumatic hydrocephalus....

    It is almost a century since Dandy made the first experimental studies on hydrocephalus, but its underlying mechanism has been unknown up to now. The conventional view is that cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) malabsorption due to hindrance of the CSF circulation causes either obstructive or...

    Introduction: Hydrocephalus does not indicate a single clinical entity, but includes a variety of clinicopathological conditions caused by excessive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) based on the disturbed circulation. Recent progress in prenatal neuroimagings such as MRI and ultrasound...

    Objective : The present study aims to investigate 1) the risk factors for hydrocephalus and subdural hygroma (SDG) occurring after decompressive craniectomy (DC), and 2) the association between the type of SDG and hydrocephalus. Methods : We retrospectively reviewed the clinical and radiological...

    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced by choroid plexus, circulates in the subarachnoid space and the resorbtion occurs at the level of arachnoid granulation. Ventricular enlargement appears because of: 1exces of CSF production, 2. altered CSF flow or resorbtion, 3. secondary post-traumatic, and...

    We present a case of expansive CSF collection in the cerebellar convexity. The patient was a 74 years old lady who one month before had suffered a cerebellar infarct complicated with acute hydrocephalus. She had good evolution after decompressive craniectomy without shunting. Fifteen days after...

  • Hearing loss in hydrocephalus: a review, with focus on mechanisms. Satzer, David; Guillaume, Daniel // Neurosurgical Review;Jan2016, Vol. 39 Issue 1, p13 

    While neither hydrocephalus nor cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunt placement is traditionally considered in the differential diagnosis of hearing loss, there is substantial evidence that CSF circulation and pressure abnormalities can produce auditory dysfunction. Several indirect mechanisms may...

    Intraosseous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cysts, also known as intra-diploic arachnoid cysts, are usually of post-traumatic origin. Lesions presenting without a history of trauma are rare and are presumed to be of congenital origin. We report a young man with an intraosseous cystic lesion...
