Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is a damaging and often misdiagnosed neurological disease, and this reference provides concise information to help understand the disease and how it’s treated. The book explains the symptoms of NPH, how NPH develops, medical tests performed to diagnose the condition, treatment options, and care after surgery. It’s estimated that nearly 400,000 Americans have NPH, but only about 11,000 have been properly diagnosed and treated: this guide for sufferers and their families will help return patients to their normal lives.
