In patients undergoing decompressive craniectomy for traumatic brain injury(TBI) there has been reported an incidence of hydrocephalus between 0-45%. There are several radiological and clinical features described in association with development of hydrocephalus. For study the influence of these factors we conducted a retrospective observational single-center cohort study in a tertiary care center with special attention to the transcalvarial herniation(TCH) volume after decompressive craniectomy.

Hydrocephalus patients experience symptoms related to hydrocephalus in an age-dependent manner. However, prevalence estimates of hydrocephalus symptoms in young and middle-aged (YMA) adult patients ar...
Low-pressure hydrocephalus (LPH) and negative-pressure hydrocephalus (NegPH), secondary to traumatic brain injury, cerebral hemorrhage, tumor resection and central nervous system (CNS) infection in ad...
An increase in orbital volume (OV) is an important factor in posttraumatic enophthalmos. The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation of OV change using the mirror technique with posttraumati...
The pathophysiology of hydrocephalus induced brain damage remains unclear. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been demonstrated to be implicated in many central nervous system diseases. However, the ...
Slit-ventricle syndrome (SVS) is a recognized complication of ventricular shunt malfunction, resulting in cyclical symptoms without ventricular dilatation. We present a case of SVS with transient, rep...
This study will determine the level of association between the quantitative estimates of brain uptake of [18F]flutemetamol and the quantitative immunohistochemical estimates of amyloid lev...
Endometrial thickness has been used as an indicator of risk for endometrial hyperplasia and carcinoma in asymptomatic perimenopausal women. However, there is no cutoff value in perimenopau...
The study hypothesis is that an ultrasonic flow sensor can accurately measure flow in hydrocephalic shunts. The ultrasonic sensor will measure cerebrospinal fluid drainage in hydrocephalu...
Hydrocephalus (secondary or idiopathic) is a condition characterized by dilatation of the lateral and third ventricles, and often associated with increased intracranial pressure (ICP). We ...
To determine the level of association between the quantitative estimates of brain uptake of [18F]flutemetamol and the quantitative immunohistochemical and histochemistry estimates of amylo...
Volume of circulating blood in a region of the brain. It is a functional measure of the brain perfusion status which relates changes in this to changes in CEREBROVASULAR CIRCULATION that are often seen in brain diseases.
Excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within the cranium which may be associated with dilation of cerebral ventricles, INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; HEADACHE; lethargy; URINARY INCONTINENCE; and ATAXIA (and in infants macrocephaly). This condition may be caused by obstruction of cerebrospinal fluid pathways due to neurologic abnormalities, INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM INFECTIONS; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and other conditions. Impaired resorption of cerebrospinal fluid from the arachnoid villi results in a communicating form of hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus ex-vacuo refers to ventricular dilation that occurs as a result of brain substance loss from CEREBRAL INFARCTION and other conditions.
Congenital, or rarely acquired, herniation of meningeal and spinal cord tissue through a bony defect in the vertebral column. The majority of these defects occur in the lumbosacral region. Clinical features include PARAPLEGIA, loss of sensation in the lower body, and incontinence. This condition may be associated with the ARNOLD-CHIARI MALFORMATION and HYDROCEPHALUS.

Increased intracellular or extracellular fluid in brain tissue. Cytotoxic brain edema (swelling due to increased intracellular fluid) is indicative of a disturbance in cell metabolism, and is commonly associated with hypoxic or ischemic injuries (see HYPOXIA, BRAIN). An increase in extracellular fluid may be caused by increased brain capillary permeability (vasogenic edema), an osmotic gradient, local blockages in interstitial fluid pathways, or by obstruction of CSF flow (e.g., obstructive HYDROCEPHALUS).

The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
