Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hydrocephalus?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Our brain has fluid in pockets called ventricles. This fluid helps to carry nutrients to the brain and remove wastes as well. Sometimes, there is an accumulation of fluid in the ventricles which puts pressure on the brain tissues. This is a dangerous condition called hydrocephalus.

rightTick
rightTick

What is Ventriculoperitoneal shunt?

plusIcon
plusIcon

To remove the excess fluid, a device called Ventriculoperitoneal shunt is used. This device diverts the fluid from the brain and restores normal flow.

rightTick
rightTick

What are the causes of Hydrocephalus?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Many children are born with hydrocephalus. Some of the reasons for the build-up of the fluid are:

  • Excess production of the fluid

  • Blockages in the brain preventing proper flow of the fluid or

  • Improper absorption of the fluid by the blood vessels

rightTick
rightTick

What are the symptoms that indicate hydrocephalus?

plusIcon
plusIcon

There are many symptoms that point to hydrocephalus. The most obvious ones are:

  • Seizures

  • Memory loss

  • Head which is large in size

  • Headaches

  • Problems in coordination

rightTick

What is the treatment for hydrocephalus?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Currently, the most widely used procedure to treat hydrocephalus is using a ventriculoperitoneal shunt.

rightTick
rightTick

How is surgery done for hydrocephalus?

plusIcon
plusIcon

In this procedure, two catheters are placed to drain excess fluid from the ventricles. The entire procedure takes a short time to complete.

Flow of the procedure:

  • Patient is given general anaesthesia for the procedure

  • A small incision is made near the ear and a hole is drilled in the skull

  • Two catheters are placed at each of these openings

  • The catheter placed at the ear drains the fluid into the abdominal cavity which is absorbed

  • The incisions and the hole in the skull are closed

rightTick
rightTick

Is there any other treatment for hydrocephalus apart from surgery?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Unfortunately, no. The only treatment that has been working so far is VP shunt surgery.

rightTick
rightTick

Why is hydrocephalus a dangerous condition?

plusIcon
plusIcon

The excess fluid in the brain can put pressure on the brain tissue. This pressure can turn out to be fatal. Moreover, in children the excess fluid hinders the development of the brain as well as formation of facial features.

rightTick
rightTick

Is it possible to avoid infants from getting hydrocephalus?

plusIcon
plusIcon

What are the symptoms of brain tumors?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Symptoms can vary depending on type, size and location of tumor. Depending upon the location of a tumor in the brain, it will show an effect on the body function controlled by that specific part of the brain. Headaches are one of the more common symptoms, but having a headache does not always mean the presence of a tumor. Other symptoms include seizures, loss of balance, problems with vision or hearing, problems with memory, problems with walking, and personality changes.

rightTick
rightTick

How are brain tumors diagnosed?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Doctors diagnose tumors by first understanding the case history and asking if the patient has any symptoms. If there is suspicion of a tumor, a CT scan or an MRI might be recommended. In case the presence of a tumor is confirmed, a biopsy might need to be done too in order to determine if the tumor is cancerous.

rightTick
rightTick

What are the different types of brain tumors?

plusIcon
plusIcon

As per WHO, there are over 130 types of brain tumors. These are broadly categorized into primary and secondary tumors. Primary tumors originate inside the brain while secondary tumors originate outside and then travel within the brain. Within adults, three types of brain tumors are the most common

  • Meningiomas - They occur in meninges that are the lining of the brain and are the most common primary brain tumors in adults that fall in the age group of 70 and above. They are usually benign and grow slowly.

  • Astrocytomas - These are the most common types of brain tumors and fall within the broader category known as Glioma. These tumors occur in the most significant part, cerebrum.

  • Oligodendrogliomas - These tumors occur in the cells that protect the nerves by making a covering. They grow very slowly and don't spread to the surrounding areas.

rightTick
rightTick

Are all tumors cancerous?

plusIcon
plusIcon

No, not all brain tumors are cancerous. Brain tumors can either be malignant or benign. Malignant tumors have cancerous cells and are capable of spreading to health brain tissue nearby. Benign tumors, on the other hand, typically do not spread to other areas and issues created by them mostly result from these tumors pressing on certain areas of the brain.

rightTick
rightTick

What are the grades of brain tumor?

plusIcon
plusIcon

There are 4 grades of brain tumor. Grade 1 tumors grow slowly and are rarely life threatening. As the grade goes up, rate of growth goes up and tumors start becoming deadlier.

Brain tumors are critical disorders that should not be ignored. Malignant tumors can spread to other areas of the brain causing further damage. Benign tumors can also press on other areas and affect the bodily functions controlled by that specific area of the brain. With advances in medicine, doctors are able to treat most tumors these days. It’s advisable to visit a doctor as soon as you see any symptoms.

rightTick

How is brain tumor cured?

plusIcon
plusIcon

Treatment for brain tumor varies based on the type, grade and severity of the tumor. Doctors typically use either surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to cure tumors.
