Shunting of the cerebrospinal fluid by drainage systems of various design was conducted in 64 children aged from 4 months to 14 years with occlusive processes in the posterior cranial fossa. The occlusion was caused by a tumor in 57 cases and by an arachnoid cyst in 7 cases. All children were related to the high risk group, i. e. the prognosis of direct(More)
The authors have carried out neuropsychological examinations of 32 children operated for hydrocephalus on the first year of the life. A syndrome of the higher psychic function disturbances characteristics for children with early hydrocephalus is described, and the results of the neuropsychological function examinations were compared with the character,(More)
A method of local application of the unsoluble medicinal form of chloramphenicol during operations has been developed. Administration of the preparation in a dose up to 2g under an osteal or cutaneous graft induces no side complications and forms a depot of the agent therapeutic concentrations for more than 8 days. There exists a direct relationship between(More)
The authors discuss 18 child patients with suprasellar cysts containing cerebrospinal fluid; 16 of them were operated on. The following types of interventions were performed: ventriculocisternostomy, ventriculoatriostomy, excision of the cystic walls through a transventricular-transcortical, combined subfrontal and transcallosal, and only a subfrontal(More)
Time course of changes of the CSF and the elastic properties of the cerebrospinal system were studied in 25 patients with normotensive hydrocephalus and in 26 patients suffering from benign intracranial hypertension. In 66% of cases with the normotensive hydrocephalus syndrome and in 60% of those with benign intracranial hypertension CSF resorption(More)
Changes in vascular tonicity and blood filling in the brain were studied in 26 children with occlusive hydrocephalus during ventricular punctures and following surgical elimination of the occlusion. The nature of the reactive changes in the tonicity and blood filling of the cerebral and peripheral vessels was found to be different in response to the(More)
Radionuclide cisternography (RCG) was performed in 78 children with different forms of hydrocephalus: external, internal (ventricular) and obstructive. Radiological signs were determined by spatial-time distribution of a radiopharmaceutical over the liquor pathways. Morphological and liquorodynamic disorders (liquor circulation and resorption disorders)(More)
