    • congenital or acquired
    • congential: due to maldevelopment of intraurterine infection
    • acquired: due to infection, neoplasms (rare), or hemorrhage (common)
  82. patho of hydrocephalus
    • CSF is formed by 2 mechanisms:
    • secretion by choroid plexus
    • lymphatic-like drainage by the ECF in brain 

    CSF circulates thru ventricular system and is absorbed within subarachnoid spaces by unknown mechanisms
  83. mechanisms of fluid imbalance
    • hydrocelphalus results from:
    • impaired absorption of CSF within the subarachnoid space (communicating hydrocephalus) or 
    • obstruction to the flow of CSF: through the ventricular system (noncommunicating)

    • both lead to increase accumulation of CSF in ventricles
    • ventricles become dilated and compress brain---> cranial sutures are closed, skull enlarges
  84. non communication (obstructive) hydrocephalus
    result from development malformations 

    other: neoplasms, intrauterine infections, trauma
  85. Arnold Chiari Malformation
    type 2 malformation of brain seen most exclusively with myelomeningocele, is charactered by herniation of a small cerebellum, medualla, pons, and 4th ventricle into cervical spinal canal through enlarged foramen magnum
  86. manifesations of hydrocephlaus
    depends on acutiy of onsent and presence of preexisitng structural lesions
  87. signs of hydrocephalus

    • therapy of choice!
    • direct removal of source of obstruciton (neoplasm, cyst, and hematoma)
    • most require shunt procedure to drain CSF from ventricles to extracranial area; usually peritoneum (VP shunt), or right atrium (VA shunt) for absorption
  95. VP shunt
    • neonates and young infants
    • greater allowance for excess tubing: which minimizes number of revisions needed as child grows
  96. VA shunt
    • older children who have attained most of smoatic growth or children with abnromal patho
    • contraindicated in children with cardiopulmnoary diseaes or with elevated CSF protein
  97. major complications of shunt

    • staph and strep most common organisms
  98. complications of shunt
    • mechanical difficulities; kinking, plugging, migration of tubing
    • malfunction is most often by mechanical obstructin!
    • look for signs of increased ICP, fever, lethargy, vomiting
  99. post op care for shunt
    • place on un-operated side to prevent pressure on shunt valve
    • keep HOB flat: rapid decrease in IC fluid cause subdrual hemotoma due to small vien rupture in cerebral cortex
    • DO NOT PUMP SHUNT WITHOUTH SPECIFIC DIRECTION FROM DOCTOR! too many different devices..
  100. VP shunt requires
    incision on the head, behind ear, and on the abd
  101. post op care for shunt
    • OBSERVE FOR SIGNS OF INCREASE ICP!
    • may indicate obstruction of shunt
    • assess pupil size; as pressure on oculomotr nerve may cause dilation on same side as pressure
    • blood pressure may be variable due to hypoxia to brainstem
    • abd distention: due to CSf peritonitis or post-op ileus due to cath placement
  102. postop for shunt
    • monitor for I/O: may be on fluid restriction or NPO for 24 hours to prevent fluid overload 
    • monitor VS : increased temp may indicate infection
    • give good skin care to prevent tissue damage
  103. family support
    • fear
