       incidence, social and economic costs, and quality of life 
       -- Clinical manifestations of CSF shunt complications -- 
       Neuroimaging in CSF shunt complications. Complications of

       extrathecal CSF shunts, optional vs mandatory, unavoidable
       complications -- Iatrogenic complications of CSF shunting 
       -- Complications related to the choice of the CSF shunt 
       device -- Functional complications : hyperdrainage -- 
       Mechanical complications of shunts -- Infective 
       complications -- Posthemorrhagic and postinflammatory 
       complications -- Complications related to the type of 
       hydrocephalus : normal pressure hydrocephalus -- 
       Complications specific to the type of CSF shunt : atrial 
       shunt -- Complications of peritoneal shunts -- 
       Complications specific to lumboperitoneal shunt -- 
       Complications specific to pleural type of CSF shunt -- 
       Complications specific to rare type procedures of CSF 
       shunting -- Cranio-cerebral disproportion as a late 
       complication -- Epilepsy as a late complication. 
       Complications of intrathecal shunts-endoscopic treatment: 
       Introduction : the changed epidemiology of CSF shunt 
       complications, failures versus complications -- Iatrogenic
       and infective complications -- CSF fistulae as a 
       complication due to insufficient correction of the altered
       CSF dynamics -- Subdural collections : hygroma and 
       haematoma -- Complications related to endoscopic 
       fenestration in loculated hydrocephalus -- Late failures. 
520    Written and edited by leading international authorities in
       the field, this book provides an in-depth review of 
       knowledge of complications of CSF shunting, with emphasis 
       on prevention, identification, and management. It covers 
       the full range of shunt-related complications and the 
       various associated adverse consequences that remain common
       despite significant improvements in imaging techniques and
       therapeutic methods. The chapters are organized into three
       parts: introduction, complications of extrathecal CSF 
       shunt devices, and complications of endoscopy. In addition
       to providing clinicians and investigators with the most 
       pertinent current evidence, the book looks forward to 
       future areas of hydrocephalus research and to innovative 
       therapeutic philosophies. This comprehensive reference 
       book will be an ideal source for neurosurgeons seeking 
       both basic and more sophisticated information and 
       procedures relating to the complications associated with 
       CSF shunting. It will also contribute in overcoming the 
       problem of lack of knowledge of basic fluid dynamics and 
       workings of the shunts ? knowledge that is essential for 
       optimal care of hydrocephalic patients.
