Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Hydrocephalus literally means water in the head. Hydrocephalus occurs because the flow of brain-spinal fluid is disrupted. This can occur in excess fluid production, reduced fluid absorption, or blockage between these flows. This fluid normally resides in spaces in the brain called the ventricles. Each of these ventricles is normally connected. In non communicating hydrocephalus, the ventricles are not related.

Babies who have hydrocephalus will have a head that is larger than normal with obvious veins. The baby's eyes can also be seen glancing down. In older children, the head will not increase in size, but the child will experience severe headaches due to the pressure of the fluid in his head. If left untreated, this can be very dangerous to the point of death.

Various surgical techniques can be selected to treat hydrocephalus, depending on the child's condition. The operation is performed in the operating room with the child under general anesthesia. Parents are usually invited to discuss with neurosurgeons about the operation to be performed. Surgery is important to do so that excess brain fluid can be drained and the pressure inside the head returns to normal. Operations are also carried out so that the child's brain and physical development can run well.

Every action has risks. As a father, it's only natural to worry. However, this action is important to save your little one's life. In general, children still need to be monitored by a doctor regularly after surgery. Thus, if complications occur, the child can immediately get good treatment. Remember that not all children have complications.

So much information from me. Hopefully this is useful and hopefully the operation on Monday will run smoothly until your son can recover.

Regards,

dr. Selvi
