Andrlman Research on cats may one day determine whether children should have a brain operation for hydrocephalus, or enlargement of the head The research, funded by the Raster Seal Research foundation, is being conducted by Dr. James Guinane of New England Medical (’enter hospitals. Boston He's trying to develop a safe, rapid and easily performed diagnostic test to determine if an infant has hydrocephalus, as well as a basis for deciding whether a child with hydrocephalus should have neurosurgery. “Optimal management of hydrocephalus basis! on improved diagnostic techniques can result in children with less severe intellectual and other neurological handicaps,” Dr Guinane explains Path Obstructed Hydrocephalus results when the brain’s fluid pathways are somehow obstructed by birth defect, tumor, hemorrhage or the aftermath of an infection. An infant’s skull expands readily from the internal pressures of the disease Dr (iuinane says progressive hydrocephalus, treated as early as possible, can be alleviated by a neurosurgical shunting procedure which provides an artificial, alternate pathway for the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. The problem is in determining whether the disease is progressive — that is, if it is getting worse Diagnosis of the progressive form of the disease has not been made until head measurements show an abnormal rate Of growth; while doctors wait to take the measurements, additional brain damage may occur If the condition is static, surgery may not be required New Technique Now Dr Guinane is developing a new simplified technique for measuring fluid pressure, volume and flow His research on cats is directed at finding ways to diagnose the chronic stages of hydrocephalus The laboratory cats are artificially kept in a chronic state of hydrocephalus with inert clay injections to block the fluid pathways. Children who appear for treatment are typically in the chronic state and present enlarged heads. Let’s hope this research will make the future brighter for children with hydrocephalus Caged Lions Kill Man Trying To Free Them PORT OF SPAIN.
