Objectives: Suspected cerebrospinal fluid shunt (CSF) dysfunction in hydrocephalic patients poses a diagnostic uncertainty. The clinical picture can be nonspecific and CT imaging alone is not always pathognomic. Infusion tests are an increasingly used investigation for real-time hydrodynamic assessment of shunt patency. We report correlation between infusion test results with quality of ventricular drain placement on CT image in large retrospective group of hydrocephalic patients. Materials & methods: 306 infusion test results performed in 200...
