FREE WEBINAR – NPH: What Your Doctors are Thinking Before and After the Shunt is Placed

Please join the Hydrocephalus Association and Drs. Christopher Farrell and James Golomb for a discussion of normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) diagnosis, management, and complications.

The road to diagnosis of NPH is not always straight and narrow and neither is the management once NPH has been diagnosed and treated. While most adults who receive shunts for NPH can look forward to good outcomes, it is important to know what other diagnoses can mimic NPH and how your physicians go about sorting out who needs a shunt and who needs more evaluation or alternative treatment.

In this session, two clinical experts in Neurology and Neurosurgery will share their collective experience in the pre-surgical and post-surgical management of NPH from the time of initial evaluation through long-term follow-up.  They will discuss the differential diagnosis of NPH, the value of further diagnostic testing, and shunt placement.  They will also focus on the complications of shunts and what to do if the patient is not getting better, including how to evaluate whether the shunt is functioning and what other diagnoses or disorders may be contributing to the NPH-like symptoms.

Suggested Audience

    It was wonderful that Doctors Farrell and Golomb spent considerably more than the allotted hour imparting information and answering some of our questions – thank you! One question I did not get to ask is how can patients who have had a shunt implanted minimize their chances of shunt malfunction? Is there anything we can be doing to maximize our chances for sustained recovery?
