Ventricle dilatation does not indicate suffering hydrocephalus.
There are many reasons for the expansion of the ventricles, such as hypoxic encephalopathy or brain atrophy, which will cause the teacher to expand. It is necessary to cooperate with the doctor for brain CT examination and physical examination. Generally, the specific cause can be clarified. Patients with mild illness can be treated conservatively with drugs, and those with more severe illness need to be treated by hydrocephalus flow surgery.
To take care of the wound after the operation, it is necessary to use alcohol or iodophor to disinfect around the wound, and to prevent complications.
