Abstract

Hydrocephalus is a frequent complication of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The optimum method of treating hydrocephalus in this setting has not been determined. We review our experience with patients developing communicatinghydrocephalus secondary to SAH and subsequently treated with lumboperitoneal (LP) shunts. Following hospitalization for the treatment of SAH, patients who developed clinical symptoms and radiologic signs of hydrocephalus were treated with (ventriculoperitoneal) VP or LP shunting. Eighteen patients received an LP shunt, of which seven (28%) developed a non-communicating orobstructive hydrocephalus. These seven patients underwent replacement witha VP shunt and have not had further complications. In the setting of post-SAM communicating hydrocephalus, obstructive hydrocephalus may develop after LP shunt placement. Patients who develop this complication and have theirLP shunts converted to VP shunts have a favorable prognosis. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
