What is Hydrocephalus?

A condition of the brain where the cerebrospinal fluid is being accumulated abnormally in the brain and ventricles is called hydrocephalus.

This extra fluid tends to put pressure on the brain and nervous system, causing a lot of trouble and symptoms like

  • Headache
  • Large head size
  • Seizures
  • Loss of speech and control

Large head size is seen in infants as their skull bone is not fused.

How is the Procedure Performed?

To treat hydrocephalus, immediate drainage of CSF fluid is arranged by surgically inserting a tube or shunt to drain out the excessive fluid.

This tube is monitored till the symptoms subside and the patient is kept on regular follow-up.

Medicines are given which are diuretic in nature and help in flushing out the excessive fluid.

Who is the Right Doctor for Hydrocephalus Treatment?

The doctor for treating such conditions are Neurosurgeons, Head and Neck surgeons, and Pediatric Surgeons.

What tests are required?

In cases of abnormally big head size, it is pretty straightforward, and no diagnostic test is required; however, in adult cases, we might have to do a CT scan and MRI to understand the condition.

What is the Usual Success Rate for this Procedure?

The success rate is highly variable, and it depends upon a lot of factors, like

  • The age of the patient
  • The reason for the condition
  • How long the state has been sustained.

In general, the survival percentage is 24-75%.

What is included in the cost of Hydrocephalus Treatment?

The cost of Hydrocephalus Treatment includes:

  • Preoperative diagnostic tests cost (X-ray or MRI may be done) 

  • Surgery cost 

  • Type of surgery (surgical shunt implantation or endoscopic third ventriculostomy)

  • Post-Operative cost (depends on the number of follow-up sessions)

  • Medicine cost (antibiotics, painkillers, etc.)

  • Patient's hospital stay (may need to stay for 2-4 days)

What are the factors affecting cost of Hydrocephalus Treatment?

The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:

 

  • Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing or single room)

  • The severity of the disease

  • Post-surgical complication, if it happens (such as Walking problems, mild dementia, and bladder control issues usually show some improvement within days after surgery)

  • Cost of Blood products (if required)

  • Age of the patient

  • An extended stay at the Hospital

  • Cost of Accommodation during follow-ups, in case the patient is not a local resident
