  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    […] low pressure hydrocephalus HYDROCEPHALUS, NORMAL-PRESSURE Chronic adult hydrocephalus NPH symptomatic hydrocephalus[] INTRODUCTION: Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), described by Hakim and Adams in 1965, is characterized by gait apraxia, urinary incontinence, and dementia.[] The increasing number of published reports outlining the efficacy of ETV in noncommunicating or obstructive hydrocephalus, with comparatively low complication rates, has led[]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

  • Hydrocephalus

    Hydrocephalus requires regular and long term follow-up.[] apraxia, incontinence, dementia.[] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[]

  • Parinaud Syndrome

    SUMMARY The cases of two patients with hypertensive hydrocephalus and Parinaud syndrome are reported.[] The patient is older and presents with progressive gait apraxia, incontinence, and dementia. This triad of symptoms defines normal-pressure hydrocephalus.[] Abstract Eight cases of obstructive hydrocephalus manifesting palsy of upward gaze and other features of the Sylvian aqueduct syndrome are reported.[]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    […] with congenital communicating hydrocephalus.[] apraxia, incontinence, dementia.[] Obstructive hydrocephalus is a term usually used to denote obstructive non-communicating hydrocephalus.[]
