CSF Circulation Failures
2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium
OSLO, NORWAY - JULY 1-2, 2019
About one hundred years ago, Harvey Cushing coined the currently held concept of cerebrospinal fluid circulation, called the "third circulation". New developments in MRI and imaging technologies have brought about new theories. As Dr. Per Kristian Eide
remarks, "we are now witnessing a paradigm shift regarding our concept of CSF flow and circulation."
Studies in patients and using models that mimic idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) and idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) have done a lot to advance our knowledge in these areas. Dr. Eide gives a great presentation on the new theories that have come out. (2019)
This presentation was made possible thanks to a generous grant from The Monkton Institute and was presented at the 2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium held in Oslo, Norway.
