It was disputed by the parties and their medical experts as to whether these findings - a movement of the condition from the left lateral ventricle to both ventricles -were indicative of hydrocephalus.

Male Sprague-Dawley rats were surgically implanted with three electroencephalogram (EEG) screw electrodes (on the right hemisphere of the frontal and parietal lobes and the left hemisphere of the occipital lobe) and a guide cannulae into the lateral ventricle. After seven days' recovery they were divided into five groups.
Injecting LPS into the lateral ventricle caused rat brain dysfunction, as evidenced by deficits of spatial learning and memory in the Morris water maze.
What may be regarded as one of the important forerunners of modern day shunts was credited to Mikulicz who in 1893 attempted the first permanent shunt by draining CSF from the lateral ventricle to the subarachnoid, subdural and subgaleal spaces using gold tubes and cat-gut strands (4,10,12).
Among 14 IVIG-treated patients who underwent volumetric MRI at baseline and after 18 months, the yearly increase in lateral ventricle volume measured with volumetric MRI was lowest in patients treated with 0.4 mg/kg every 2 weeks (2.4%) and highest in those treated with 0.2 mg/kg every 2 weeks (11.2%).
* Transthalamic: thalami, third ventricle, atrium lateral ventricle with choroid plexus
Lateral ventricle enlargement is invariably noted ipsilateral to the lesion, and there have been a few reported cases in which placement of shunts have prevented further growth.
A red, firm 3.5x3.0x3.0cm mass was found within the right lateral ventricle compressing the hippocampus and thalamus (Figure 1A).
Hippocampal volume in patients with AD is typically at least two standard deviations below normal, and volume of the temporal horn of the lateral ventricle is typically two standard deviations above normal, Dr.
2 A, B), and one could also observe the internal capsule and the caudate nucleus above the temporal recess of the lateral ventricle (Fig.
The amount of lateral ventricle asymmetry was measured from MRI scans and compared to motor deficit due to stroke and motor recovery due to Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CI therapy).
