Cerebrospinal Fluid Dynamics Study

HYGEIA Hospital provides Cerebrospinal fluids dynamics studies for diagnosis of cerebrospinal fluid disorders & hydrocephalus and cerebrospinal fluid shunts function.

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced and is absorbed by brain.  CSF consists in water and many substances, which are useful in protection and function of brain and spinal cord

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) is a type of hydrocephalus that affects older people. Those patients have got walking difficulties, incontinence and dementia.

It is believed that up to 6% – 10% of the elderly demented people, they have Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, which is a treatable disease.

Hygeia Hospital provides CSF dynamics studies by LIKVOR CELDA® SYSTEM, which is a sophisticated medical device that measures the dynamics of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system and cerebrospinal fluid shunt function in a precise and safe way.

Procedure

Patient lies down on specific designed bed and two spinal needles are placed in the lower back of the spine under aseptic technique and local anesthetic. Those needles are connected with the device, which performs the study in automatic and standardized way. Afterwards, patient moves to his/her room for clinical reassessment.

Before the study, patient must provide a recent MR/CT scan of his/her brain and the medication that he/she is on.

  1. Get a deeper understanding of your patient’s CSF-dynamics and shunt functionality
  2. Simplifies analysis of CSF disorders
  3. Safe and reliable method
  4. It helps to diagnose/exclude NPH patients from other dementia diseases such as Alzheimer or Parkinson’s
  5. CSF Shunt diagnostics pre- and post shunt surgery reduces the number of CSF shunt reoperations
