The Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network (HCRN) investigators met in Pittsburgh, PA, during the week of April 20, 2016, for our semi-annual investigator meeting.  The meeting included presentations from each of the five new HCRN centers that were culled from 20 applications received in response to HCRN’s Request For Applications (RFA) for new centers.  The RFA was posted in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics in January 2016.  We are excited to welcome Dr. Edward Ahn (Johns Hopkins), Dr. Todd Hankinson (Colorado Children’s Hospital), Dr. Mark Krieger (Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles) and Dr. Jonathan Pindrick (Nationwide Children’s Hospital). Also, congratulations to Dr. Jay Riva-Cambrin, who recently moved to Calgary in Canada, on the addition of Alberta Children’s Hospital.  These new sites will work to begin enrolling patients in our PCORI funded Entry Site Trial and the HCRN Registry as soon as possible.

    My daughter has been hydrocephalic since birth due to an injury at birth.
    She had a programmable shunt placed a year ago. She developed an infection in her peritoneal area. She under went antibiotic therapy with the shunt draining externally. She underwent 2 additional revisions before things settled down. She is still having difficulty with her pressure being to high or to low, needing adjustments approximately every other month. We want to consult with a specialist in hydrocephalus to find a solution to this see-saw existence.
    Thank you in advance for your help
