  1. 1. Adult hydrocephalus. Intracranial pressure, B-wave and clinical analysis in patients with noncommunicating and communicating hydrocephalus

    Author : Hannes Stephensen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CSF circulation; hydrocephalus; NPH; communicating hydrocephalus; noncommunicating hydrocephalus; aqueduct stenosis; intracranial pressure; B-waves; transmantle pressure gradient; computerised data acquisition; clinical symptoms.;

    Abstract : Aims of present investigations. Adult patients with clinical and radiological findings consistent with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) were studied. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrocephalus in children. Epidemiology and outcome

    Author : Eva-Karin Persson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prevalence; Epidemiology; Hydrocephalus; MMC; Treatment; Outcome;

    Abstract : Aims: To analyse trends in the live-birth prevalence of infantile hydrocephalus and hydrocephalus associated with myelomeningocele (MMC) during the period 1989-2002 and to study the outcome in terms of learning disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and visual deficits. Another objective was to explore motor function and disability profiles in various aetiological and gestational-age subgroups and to see whether treatment complications and neuroradiological findings correlate with outcome.

  3. 3. Measurements in Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Computerized neuropsychological test battery and intracranial pulse waves

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anders Behrens; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hydrocephalus; Normal Pressure; Neuropsychological tests; Neuropsychology; Reliability and validity; Software; Dementia; intracranial pressure; spinal puncture; cerebrospinal fluid pressure; pulse pressure waves; Blood flow velocity; Middle cerebral artery; Pulsatility index; neurologi; Neurology;

    Abstract : Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (INPH) is a condition affecting gait, cognition and continence. Radiological examination reveals enlarged ventricles of the brain. A shunt that drains CSF from the ventricles to the abdomen often improves the symptoms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fluid dynamic principles for analysis of intracranial pressure control application towards space medicine and hydrocephalus

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Petter Holmlund; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intracranial pressure; posture; cerebrospinal fluid; microgravity; venous collapse; internal jugular vein; fluid dynamics; venous pressure; spaceflight-associated neuro-ocular syndrome; hydrocephalus; mathematical modeling; ultrasound; magnetic resonance imaging;

    Abstract : Intracranial pressure (ICP) is an important component of the fluid dynamic environment of the brain and plays a central role with regards to the maintenance of normal cerebral blood flow and neuronal function. However, many regulatory mechanisms controlling the ICP are still poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Cerebrospinal Fluid Tap Test and Magnetic Resonance Imaging as Preoperative Prognostic Investigations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Virhammar; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; normal pressure hydrocephalus; NPH; cerebrospinal fluid disorders; dementia; MRI; CSF tap test; CBF; ASL; Neurology; Neurologi; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a condition with dilated cerebral ventricles but intracranial pressure within normal limits. The symptoms of gait impairment, cognitive decline and urinary incontinence develop gradually. Treatment with shunt insertion results in improvement in eight out of ten patients. READ MORE
