Post Hemorrhagic Hydrocephalus
The Hydrocephalus Association’s annual Vision Dinner will serve as the catalyst for a focused research initiative that aims to prevent or minimize the development of hydrocephalus after a brain bleed.
Hydrocephalus Association announces Resident Prize Awardee Jennifer Strahle, MD. for her research paper presented at the AANS/CNS Pediatric Section meeting.
The Gerber Foundation recently awarded Dr. Chevis Shannon, Research Assistant Professor & Director of the Pediatric Neurosurgery Clinical Research Initiative at Vanderbilt University, and HCRN investigator, a grant to evaluate the impact of post hemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) on neurodevelopmental outcomes in premature infants.
In a study published in the journal Brain, researchers find that the infusion of a naturally occurring protein can prevent the development of hydrocephalus after an intraventricular hemorrhage. The results show great promise in the work to develop a preventive therapy for the development of hydrocephalus, particularly in one of our most fragile populations, premature infants.
Dr. David Limbrick discuss his current research study which aims to develop a complimentary tool to supplement the information from imaging in order to determine the best time to treat infants with post hemorrhagic hydrocephalus.
In a new Research Department blog series, HCRN Update, Ashly Westrick interviews Dr. Jay Wellons, principal HCRN investigator for the Shunt Outcomes in Post Hemorrhagic Hydrocephalus study.
