Our brain is the organ that helps us to function without which we are nothing but a lump of flesh and bones. Diseases in our brain can cause a lot of problems. It can push us to insanity, paralysis, abnormality as well as death. One of such grave diseases of the brain is hydrocephalous. It requires a surgery to cure that disease which is very expensive. But if it the treatment is done in India, it will be successful and cost effective.
Hydrocephalous is the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within the brain which causes increased pressure inside the skull.
Hydrocephalous is such a deformity that happens both to infants and adults. It takes the shape of a birth defect in infants or is acquired later in life. The birth defects can be listed as aqueductal stenosis and neural tube defects. Meningitis, brain tumor, traumatic brain injury, intraventricular hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage are the other factors that cause hydrocephalus.
Hydrocephalus can be categorized into four kinds. They are: communicating, non-communicating, ex-vacuo and normal pressure.
First of all, the hydrocephalous head looks larger and deformed like a big sac. This symptom is much more prevalent in infants rather than in older people. The older people may have headaches, double vision, poor balance, urinary incontinence, mental impairment, vomiting, sleepiness, seizures and downward pointing of the eyes.
The most common treatment for hydrocephalus is shunt treatment. In this treatment a shunt system is placed in the brain to check the speedy accumulation of the cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. The shunts come in various forms most of which are connected to a catheter. The shunt system is placed in the peritoneal cavity of the brain.
