    2017 Barrow Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Education Day

    March 11, 2017
    | Phoenix, Arizona

    Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities called ventricles inside the brain. Every day, the average adult produces about one pint of CSF, which cushions the brain from injury and carries nutrients to and waste products away from the brain. In NPH, the CSF pathways become blocked, and CSF builds up, causing the ventricles to become enlarged, usually with little or no increase in pressure. In most cases, it is not clear why this happens. NPH causes three main symptoms: difficulty walking, mild dementia and impaired bladder control. Because these symptoms are also associated with the aging process and other diseases, many people with NPH go undiagnosed or possibly misdiagnosed for years. Fortunately, NPH can often be successfully treated with a special shunt that drains excess CSF away from the brain to another part of the body, usually the abdominal cavity, where it can be absorbed. This shunt is programmable, meaning that the rate of flow can be adjusted using a special magnet without requiring additional surgeries.
