As described in the answer of my colleague, normal pressure hydrocephalus (nph) is a rather common condition afflicting many patients.
The patient should be evaluated by a neurologist, and often a spinal tap can be performed to remove some fluid-volume in assessing the patients probable response to a shunting procedure. If the patient does well after the tap, the chances of a favourable outcome after shunting are very good. The shunting procedure as such is in most cases very low risk and requires only a short surgical procedure and commonly a 1 night hospital stay. ...Read more
