Hydrocephalus is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities in the brain called ventricles. It occurs when there is an imbalance between the amount of CSF that is produced and the rate at which it is absorbed.
Se define como una acumulación anormal de líquido cefalorraquídeo (LCR) en las cavidades normales del cerebro conocidas como ventrículos. Esta acumulación de líquido puede generar presión sobre el tejido cerebral y ocasionar daños, impidiendo el funcionamiento normal.
Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that causes the ventricles in the brain to become enlarged, sometimes with little or no increase in intracranial pressure (ICP).
