What are the Hydrocephalus symptoms?

There are three types of Hydrocephalus:

Congenital Hydrocephalus
Acquired Hydrocephalus
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

The Hydrocephalus that’s present at birth is called Congenital Hydrocephalus. In contrast, the one that develops after birth is called Acquired hydrocephalus, and the one diagnosed in old age is called Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus.

How is the diagnosis of Hydrocephalus made?

Congenital and acquired hydrocephalus can be diagnosed with brain scans such as CT and MRI scans. NPH is diagnosed using a checklist. The way you walk, your mental abilities, and symptoms that influence bladder control, for example, will all be evaluated.

What kind of Hydrocephalus treatments are available?

Hydrocephalus is typically treated by a tiny tube (shunt) surgically inserted in the brain that drains excess fluid. Shunt surgery can sometimes be replaced with an endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). A hole is cut on the floor of the brain during this treatment to allow fluid to escape to the surface, where it is absorbed. 

What kind of Hydrocephalus treatments are available?

 Hydrocephalus is defined broadly as a disruption in the formation, flow, or absorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), increasing the volume occupied by this fluid in the central nervous system (CNS). 

The clear, colorless fluid that protects the brain and spine is called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Cerebrospinal fluid normally flows through the ventricles, bathing the brain and spinal cord before reabsorbing into the bloodstream. Every day, the body produces and absorbs the same amount of CSF.

An accumulation of fluid in the brain is known as hydrocephalus. The extra fluid puts pressure on the brain, which might cause it to become damaged. Hydrocephalus can be lethal if left untreated.
