Treatment of hydrocephalus abroad: effective methods of Israeli doctors
Treatment of hydrocephalus abroad - in Israeli clinics - may involve medical therapy or surgery, which is carried out by neuro-endoscopic or bypass surgery. Medical treatment of internal cerebral hydrocephalus in an adult or a child is prescribed by a doctor in the case when the disease is detected at the initial stage and progresses moderately, sluggishly.

- shunting - the technique has been used in medicine for about 50 years, improving every year. During the operation, silicone tubes are inserted into the patient, connecting the dropsy area to the abdominal or chest cavity to drain the accumulated fluid. The disadvantage of this method is the often manifested complications;
- neuroendoscopy is a more modern replacement surgical method for treating cerebral hydrocephalus, when a neuroendoscope with a miniature camera is inserted through the external opening, allowing you to see the progress of the operation on the screen. A catheter is inserted into the ventricle of the brain through which excess fluid is removed. This method gives the most positive result.
