in unenhanced CT of patients with ischemic stroke," in Proceedings of the Medical Imaging 2013: Computer-Aided Diagnosis, Lake Buena Vista (Orlando Area), Fla, USA, February 2013.
According to the classical hypothesis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow dynamics, CSF is produced within the ventricular system and it circulates toward the subarachnoid space where it is absorbed and a blockage between ventricular and subarachnoid spaces would cause an increase of intraventricular pressure and dilatation of brain ventricles
Laura feared her baby might not survive the birth, or may face major surgery, but as her pregnancy progressed Bella's kidneys developed and went back to the normal range, the hole in her heart was only 1mm so not considered a problem and the brain ventricle
stayed only slightly over the cut-off.
In the prenatal period, polyhydramniosis, intrauterine growth retardation, enlarged brain ventricles
and brain anomalies are observed.
A novel polymeric nimodipine microparticle, a single dose of EG-1962 is administered directly into the brain ventricles
, from where it releases the drug at the site of brain injury over 21-days.
"He had to have a lumbar puncture as well as a shunt tube put into one of his brain ventricles
to drain off more fluid.
Additionally, there was an eight to 10 percent increase in the size of the brain ventricles
, which are areas filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that play a protective role in the brain.
Most sufferers also have hydrocephalus, a fluid that developed because of the spina bifida and which rests in brain ventricles
