Abstract
Abstract OBJECTIVE To review our experience of managing idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) during the 6-year period from 2002 to 2007, when intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring was part of the diagnostic workup. METHODS The review includes all iNPH patients undergoing diagnostic ICP monitoring during the years 2002 to 2007. Clinical grading was done prospectively using a normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) grading scale (scores from 3 to 15). The selection of patients for surgery was based on clinical symptoms, enlarged cerebral ventricles, and findings on ICP monitoring. The median follow-up time was 2 years (range, 0.3–6 years). Both static I...
