Information Monday

Today, I’m going to explain what non-communicating Hydrocephalus is.

Non-Hydrocephalus is also called obstructive Hydrocephalus. It occurs when the flow of CSF is blocked after it exits the ventricles. The word “communicating” refers to the fact that CSF can still flow between the ventricles, which remains open.

Next week, I’m going to explain what normal pressure Hydrocephalus is.
