H YDROCEPHALUS is currently treated by an assortment of shunting procedures, the common goal of which is to reduce the volume of the ventricular system to normal or near normal. Perhaps the most serious late complication of the procedure is total shunt dependency. In this condition the ventricles are often reduced to normal or subnormal size and occasionally even slits. Since the skull is no longer freely expansile, and alternative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) absorptive pathways have long since… CONTINUE READING
