Summary of "A retrospective regional study of aqueduct stenosis and fourth ventricle outflow obstruction in the paediatric complex neurofibromatosis type 1 population; Aetiology, clinical presentation and management."

Aqueduct stenosis (AS) and fourth ventricle outflow obstruction are rare associations of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), resulting in ventriculomegaly and hydrocephalus requiring surgical treatment. This study aims to identify the prevalence of AS and its patterns of clinical presentation, aetiology and treatment in the paediatric complex NF1 population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.

A narrow cleft inferior to the corpus callosum, within the diencephalon, between the paired thalami. Its floor is formed by the HYPOTHALAMUS, its anterior wall by the lamina terminalis, and its roof by EPENDYMA. It communicates with the FOURTH VENTRICLE by the CEREBRAL AQUEDUCT, and with the LATERAL VENTRICLES by the interventricular foramina.

Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.

A pathological constriction occurring in the region above the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.

A pathological constriction occurring in the region below the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
