Arrested Hydrocephalus

Occasionally, hydrocephalus may evolve into a chronic state in which ventricular enlargement persists, yet CSF pressure returns to normal. This situation might be more accurately termed "compensated hydrocephalus". In children who have truly compensated, insertion of a shunt may be detrimental, leading to symptoms of low pressure or chronic subdural formation in addition to the usual complications of shunt devices. On the other hand, it is important not to miss the child whose neurodevelopmental progress is being hindered by the presence of hydrocephalus. If a decision is made not to embark upon surgical treatment, close monitoring is required in order to be sure that there is no disproportionate increase in head growth or progression of ventricular size and to ensure that development proceeds at a satisfactory pace.
