SummaryEarly hydrocephalus is a risk factor of shunt-dependent late hydrocephalus (SDHC). In the CT era 1980–1990 we had 835 consecutive patients operated on because of aneurysm and subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH); 294 had an early hydrocephalus and 67 finally required a shunt. There were 14 patients with normal early CT and SDHC, in all 81 patients needed a shunt (10%). Patients with shunt did worse, they were older (53 vs 49) than the non-shunted group and there was a female preponderance.Pre… CONTINUE READING
