Research overview:
Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus in the elderly people is known as a treatble dementia and unsteadiness gait with cerebrospinal fluid (CFSF) shunt operation. However, differential diagnosis from other causes of senile dementia is difficult and selection of CSF shunt system is controversial. We investigate more diagnostic measures and more effective shunt system.
