Hydrocephalus is a significant concern after hemispherectomy and often other resective surgeries. But why? This session will provide you with an overview of the brain's ventricular system, the Monroe Kellie hypothesis which explains why disrupting the ratio of blood-to-brain-to-cerebrospinal fluid can result in hydrocephalus, where shunts are commonly placed, and difficulties diagnosing hydrocephalus when imaging shows no change in ventricle size but the child is symptomatic, has over-draining issues, and other challenges.
