  • Key ResultIn a follow-up study of 164 hydrocephalic children without tumors treated with ventriculoperitoneal shunts, 46 (28.0%) developed slit ventricles, 5 (3.0%) developed isolated fourth ventricles, and 4 (2.4%) developed isolated unilateral hydrocephalus. All of the patients with isolated unilateral hydrocephalus and 3 with isolated fourth ventricles had associated slit ventricles, 2 of whom had enlarged ventricles as double-compartment hydrocephalus.Expand Abstract
