Histotripsy for the treatment of hydrocephalus

Dr. Jonathan R. Sukovich is an assistant research scientist (faculty role) of biomedical engineering at University of Michigan. His study entitled “Histotripsy for the Treatment of Hydrocephalus” will test the feasibility of using histotripsy, an ultrasound method to perform non-invasive treatments. He believes that histotripsy has the potential to meet the need for incisionless, non-invasive surgical treatments for hydrocephalus, such as ETVs, choroid plexus lesionectomies, and clearing ventriculostomy tubing.
