Naftel brings those techniques to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in preparation for a study to evaluate the long-term outcomes of the treatment.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>Most children with hydrocephalus are implanted with a shunt, a tube that drains excess spinal fluid from the head into the belly.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>Without the drain, the fluid buildup can affect brain development and cause disability or death.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>“Shunts are great, but it’s like the plumbing in your house. Eventually those pipes are going to clog up. For a lot of children in places like Uganda, without immediate access to medical care, shunts aren’t the best option,” Naftel said.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>Another procedure, called endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), reroutes the brain’s plumbing without any foreign hardware, but isn’t always successful, especially in children younger than 2.</p>&#13; &#13; <p><a href="http://news.vanderbilt.edu/2014/02/hydrocephalus-treatment-study-began-in-uganda/" target="_blank">Read More...</a></p>&#13; </div> <div class="field field--name-field-lockdown-auth field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Lockdown Auth</div> <div class="field__item">1</div> </div> Mon, 23 Feb 2015 20:10:18 +0000 westria 140 at https://www.vumc.org/socks Stacy Tanaka MD, Principal Investigator for New Spina Bifida Registry at Vanderbilt https://www.vumc.org/socks/faculty-highlights-news/stacy-tanaka-md-principal-investigator-new-spina-bifida-registry-vanderbilt <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Stacy Tanaka MD, Principal Investigator for New Spina Bifida Registry at Vanderbilt</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/socks/users/westria" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">westria</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 12/08/2014 - 09:46</span> <a href="/socks/blog-post-rss/131" class="feed-icon" title="Subscribe to Stacy Tanaka MD, Principal Investigator for New Spina Bifida Registry at Vanderbilt"> RSS: <i class="fa fa-rss-square"></i> </a> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p class="rtejustify"><img alt="Tanaka.jpg" src="https://www.vumc.org/socks/sites/vumc.org.socks/files/public_files/Tanaka.jpg" style="width: 143px; height: 200px; float: left;" /> Periodically we will highlight faculty who are conducting research with SOCKs.  This will allow a platform to learn more about our faculty and the research that is taking place.
