HYDROCEPHALUS? also known as "water in the brain," is a medical condition in which there is an
abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid
(CSF) in the ventricles, or cavities, of the brain This may cause increased intracranial
pressure inside the skull and progressive
enlargement of the head, convulsion, tunnel
vision, and mental disability Hydrocephalus can also cause death The name derives from the Greek words - (hydro-) "water", and (kephalos) "head" SIGNS

HYDROCEPHALUS VICTIM TREATMENT Hydrocephalus treatment is surgical, generally
creating various types of cerebral shunts.
It involves the placement of a ventricular
catheter (a tube made of silastic),
into the cerebral ventricles to
bypass the flow obstruction/malfunctioning
arachnoidal granulations and drain
the excess fluid into other body cavities,
from where it can be resorbed. Don't you know that? September has been designated as
U.S National Hydrocephalus
Awareness Month. Hydrocephalus is represented by a
