Juhler M, Hansen TS, Novrup HVG, MacAulay N & Munch TN


In this article, we aimed to describe some of the currently most challenging problems in neurosurgical management of hydrocephalus and how these can be reasons for inspiration for and development of research. We chose 4 areas of focus: 2 dedicated to improvement of current treatments (shunt implant surgery and endoscopic hydrocephalus surgery) and 2 dedicated to emerging future treatment principles (molecular mechanisms of cerebrospinal fluid secretion and hydrocephalus genetics).
