Hydrocephalus, as known as a disease process, is an ancient one. The disorder has described in cave paintings, in early manuscripts in antiquity, and in many clinical observations over the last 25 centuries. The treatment of hydrocephalus as a surgical disorder is very recent, only dating to the 1950s. Prior to this period, treatment surgically lead to the death of the patient in almost one hundred percent of the time. Our medical colleagues did not do much better. In this chapter, we review… 

Some Therapeutic Aspects in Pediatric Hydrocephalus

It is critical to make the differential diagnosis with other entities presenting with macrocephaly, especially benign subdural effusion or benign external hydrocephalus, which occurs during infancy and includes macrocePHaly associated to frontal, parietal and temporal subarachnoid space dilatation and normal ventricular size.

Panic Disorder Revealing Congenital Hydrocephalus: A Propos D'un Cas Clinique

There are links between hydrocephalus and psychiatric manifestations and a better understanding of these links could shed light on the etiopathogeny of anxiety disorders.

Hydrocephalus in infants: the unique biomechanics and why they matter

The purpose of this review is to explore hydrocephalus that begins before skull closure and full development of the brain, which is a rare condition diagnosed prenatally or in infancy and which may develop due to failure of the terminal absorption of CSF.

Presentation of the Success Rate of ETV in Distinct Indication Cases of Hydrocephalus

Surgical techniques and the success rate of ETV in distinct indications will be presented and discussed and the overall high clinical success rate confirms that ETV is the gold standard for treatment of occlusive HC.

Cystic lesion of posterior cranial fossa: is it Dandy-Walker?

This review assesses the cystic lesions of posterior cranial fossa on the basis of embryological development, radiological findings and associated clinical aspects, in order to clarify the radiological differential diagnosis through embryology.

Slit ventricle syndrome: clinical and diagnostic pitfalls

The symptoms of slit ventricle syndrome include severe, usually intermittent headaches; vomiting and possibly some degree of decreased consciousness; and impairment in hydrocephalic children with an apparently working ventriculoperitoneal shunt, without ventricular enlargement on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Endoscopic antegrade aqueductoplasty and stenting with panventricular catheter in management of trapped fourth ventricle in patients with inadequately functioning supratentorial shunt

Endoscopic antegrade aqueductoplasty and stenting with the refashioned panventricular shunt catheter are an adequate treatment option for both TFV and supratentorial shunt malfuncion.

Age-specific global epidemiology of hydrocephalus: Systematic review, metanalysis and global birth surveillance

While high-income countries had a lower hydrocephalus incidence according to the ICBDSR registry, folate fortification status was not associated with incidence, and the findings may inform future healthcare resource allocation and study.
