Cerebral blood flow after ventriculoperitoneal shunt in children with hydrocephalus

Abstract

Fourteen hydrocephalic children were studied who were between the ages of 6 months and 14 years. Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured by the 133Xe intravenous injection method after ventriculoperitonal shunting. There was a negative correlation between slow flow and preoperative ventricular size (r=-0.718, P<0.02), but there was no correlation… (More)
