BACKGROUND: Currently, the most common treatment for idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) is a ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS), generally with programmable valve implantation. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is another treatment option, and it does not require prosthesis implantation. OBJECTIVE: To compare the functional neurological outcome in patients after 12 months of treatment with INPH by using 2 different techniques: ETV or VPS. METHODS: Randomized, parallel, open-label trial involving the study of 42 patients with INPH and a positive response to the tap test, from January 2009 to January 2012...

The dependence of occipital and frontal lobes of the brain cortex bioelectrical activity and function from blood and oxygen supply was investigated in 626 minopic and 80 children and teenagers with normal vision. Myopia was found a natural model of blood and oxygen deprivation, of decrease of bioelectrical activity of frontal and partially occipital lobes, especially. The decrease of alpha-rythme index and alpha-waves amplitude was found on EEG of occipital lobes. Adaptation to hypoxia in the course of interval hypoxic training and the course of osteoreflex stimulation were proved to be reliable means for improving blood and oxygen supply of occipital and frontal lobes of the brain cortex, which was followed by normalization of EEG and vision: the sharpness of vision rose to 1...
