The 2018 Vision Dinner was held on Friday, Nov. 2 in New York City. Generously underwritten by Craig and Vicki Brown, benefactors of the Hydrocephalus Association, the evening seeks to raise national attention about hydrocephalus and raise funds to advance hydrocephalus research.
Nov. 17 is World Prematurity Day, which highlights the health challenges premature babies face at birth and beyond. For us at HA, World Prematurity Day is a way to draw attention to Posthemorrhagic Hydrocephalus (PHH), one of the most insidious forms of hydrocephalus.
A recent study expands these results to posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus in premature infants. Please take a moment to read more about this important research.
Germinal matrix hemorrhage (GMH) is a brain bleed that occurs in approximately 3.5 per 1000 live births and remains a leading cause of mortality and lifelong morbidity in premature infants.
Learn about how Dr. Hannah Tully is uncovering risk and protective factors associated with the development of PHH, and the results of a large retrospective study she recently presented.
Courtney Pendleton, of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, and colleagues conducted a study that found that premature babies born to low-income parents have a disproportionately high risk of developing posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH).
