Abstract

Hydrocephalus and related disorders affect millions world-wide.  Complete understanding of the pathophysiology and optimal treatment of these disorders remains elusive.  Basic aspects of normal and abnormal dynamics of intracranial pressure and disease states are discussed.  Current diagnostic modalities and treatment techniques and technology are described.  Potential for improvements in technology for diagnosis and treatment are explored.
