An update on research priorities in hydrocephalus: overview of the third National Institutes of Health–sponsored symposium “Opportunities for Hydrocephalus Research: Pathways to Better Outcomes”
NIH Consensus Paper, McAllister JP et al. 2015
Building on previous National Institutes of Health–sponsored symposia on hydrocephalus research, “Opportunities for Hydrocephalus Research: Pathways to Better Outcomes” was held in Seattle, Washington, July 9–11, 2012. Plenary sessions were organized into four major themes, each with two subtopics: Causes of Hydrocephalus (Genetics and Pathophysiological Modifications); Diagnosis of Hydrocephalus (Biomarkers and Neuroimaging); Treatment of Hydrocephalus (Bioengineering Advances and Surgical Treatments); and Outcome in Hydrocephalus (Neuropsychological and Neurological). International experts gave plenary talks, and extensive group discussions were held for each of the major themes.
