Cine Mode MRI in Pre-& Post-Operative Evaluation of Hydrocephalus–Life beyond NPH and aqueduct stenosis

Hydrocephalus is usually defined as ventriculomegaly with sulcal effacement and can be classified as communicating, non-communicating or Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. Communicating Hydrocephalus is implied if the level of the obstruction is distal to the 4th ventricle while non communicating hydrocephalus is implied if the level of obstruction is cranial to the 4th ventricular outflow. Normal Pressure hydrocephalus is a special sub-class of hydrocephalus with disproportionate ventricular dilatation relative to sulcal prominence. All causes of hydrocephalus are typically treated by shunt procedures, with external shunt procedures like Ventriculo-peritoneal (other shunts include ventriculo-pleural, ventriculo-atrial and lumbo-peritoneal shunts) and internal drainage procedures like endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). External shunt procedures are usually considered the first line of surgical management, while ETV is specifically used in obstructive hydrocephalus, multiple external shunt failures and may also be used in Normal pressure hydrocephalus.
