Extracranial cerebrospinal fluid shunting is the current mainstay of therapy for hydrocephalus. The generally preferred extracranial site for cerebrospinal fluid absorption is the peritoneal space; however, the cardiac atrium and the pleura are also commonly used. On occasion other CSF recipient sites, such as the gallbladder, are used secondarily when the more common absorptive spaces are unavailable or unsuitable. The gallbladder, though, exhibits its own pressure dynamics in response to… CONTINUE READING
