The abnormal superior location of the third ventricle (between the lateral ventricles) can inhibit the correct diagnosis from being made if cautious interrogation to differentiate this structure from the cavum septum pellucidum is not performed.
The shunt system consists of several parts, a proximal catheter that enters the lateral ventricle, a valve to prevent CSF from being siphoned due to effects of gravity, and a distal catheter that ends in the peritoneal cavity or alternate drainage site (see Figure 3).
13q32 deletions result in a complex phenotype related mainly to the brain, eye, and urinary tract malformations and severe mental retardation.[4] In our case, the most striking prenatal finding was the detection of a shortage of cavum septum pellucidum, interlinked bilateral lateral ventricles of the brain, the posterior horn of the left and right ventricles were 9.5 mm/9.3 mm, small cerebellar volume, normal cerebellar vermis, unclear commissura optica, and small right eyeball.
(a) FLAIR enhancement of the ventricles and fluid levels within the posterior lateral ventricles, consistent with ventriculitis.
Following intubation and pharmacological induction, an Aesculap PaediScope[R] Endoscope was inserted in right lateral ventricle. Anatomical distortion was seen during the endoscopic examination of the ventricle (Figure 2(a)).
These studies broadly examine the potential for adult NSCs transplanted into the lateral ventricles to influence endogenous cells in the adjacent white matter and SVZ regions after TBI and specifically examine the regulatory mechanism of signaling through the Shh pathway.
Of the total number of epidermoid occurences, there is < 1% incidence of an intraven-tricular epidermoid within the lateral ventricle. (2,3) This entity has been previously reported, but only in an adult patient.
Grade-3: Spill over to ventricles with flooding of 50% or more of one or both lateral ventricles and Ventriculomegaly.
We observed a persistent dilation of the lateral ventricles, but not of the aqueduct of Sylvius, that occurred preferentially in CAPs-exposed male mice.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed bleed in left cerebellar hemisphere and vermis with bleed in both lateral ventricles. The time period between intra cranial bleed and vitreous haemorrhage was about 14 days.
