Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The outcome of 54 low birthweight (less than 2500 g) infants treated by ventriculoperitoneal or ventriculoatrial shunting for post-haemorrhagic hydrocephalus over six years is reviewed. Prognosis correlated with cranial ultrasound appearances in the neonatal period but not with factors relating to the aetiology or extent or management of the hydrocephalus.
