Abstract

A reliable technique is described for producing chronic communicating hydrocephalus in experimental animals. This involves the injection of Silastic into the basilar cisterns by way of a cisterna magna puncture. This model proves to be very useful in studying the physiology of chronic communicating hydrocephalus and allows the evaluation of the condition by isotope cisternography.
