Hi, my need to learn more about hydrocephilis. How is this condition treated and how long does it take to have it cured?

The correct name is hydrocephalus, and it is characterized by abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities in the brain. CSF constantly circulates and nourishes nerve cells of brain and spinal cord. It provides protection of central nervous structures and carries waste products. If it accumulates in ventricles the pressure grows and disables brain structures. Hydrocephalus can not be treated in other way but by surgical insertion of a shunt. The procedure called endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is becoming popular lately.
