11th National Conference on Hydrocephalus
The 11th National Conference on Hydrocephalus was held in Cleveland from 6/17 thru 6/20. Once again we came together and reconfirmed our commitment to community and the sense of mission that is already making a difference in the hydrocephalus landscape. Sessions covered a wide range of topics related to hydrocephalus. Doctors, scientists and experts in related fields selflessly provided the basis for a sound education on the subtleties of this highly nuanced condition. We would like to express our gratitude to them for all they do to provide treatment, comfort and knowledge to our community. See below for pictures, highlights and presentations from some of our conference sessions.
Two of the many highlights of the conference were two surgeries performed by neurosurgeon and conference chair Mark Luciano, MD to treat hydrocephalus. Conference attendees were able to watch both procedures live while interacting with knowledgeable medical and industry personnel about what they were seeing. The first procedure was a shunt placement surgery and the second was for an ETV (Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy). Both of these procedures are available for viewing below:
Below are a list of available presentations given at the conference. We will be providing access to more as they become available.
