PurposeHydrocephalus is a common disorder of defective cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) turnover. The identification of the aquaporin water channels (AQPs) led to the study of their role in the composition of biological fluids including CSF. The purpose of this study is to review the potential role of aquaporins in the pathogenesis, compensation, and possibly treatment of hydrocephalus.MethodsWe performed a MEDLINE search using the terms “aquaporin AND hydrocephalus.” The search returned a total of 20… CONTINUE READING
