Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus and Sleep Apnea
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04471740

Sep 29th, 2021 - Chronic hydrocephalus in adults, also known as normal pressure hydrocephalus or normal pressure hydrocephalus, occurs with the classic Hakim-Adams triad, gait ataxia, or "magnetic gait", urinary incontinence and dementia. Most of the cases have an...

Acetazolamide Trial in Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04975269

Sep 28th, 2021 - Background: The only available treatment for normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is implantation of a neurosurgical shunt system that reduces symptoms in two out of three cases. Postoperative complications are common, causing reoperations in 20-30...
