Devices in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) management market are mainly used for the treatment of hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus, or "water on the brain," refers to an abnormal buildup of CSF in the brain's ventricles. Under normal biological conditions, equilibrium between the production, circulation and absorption of CSF is maintained in the ventricular cavities of the brain as CSF is continually drained away into the circulatory system. Hydrocephalus can result when absorption of fluid into the bloodstream is blocked which leads to an accumulation of CSF. This condition can result in increased intracranial pressure inside of the skull and can lead to tunnel vision, mental disability, progressive enlargement of the head and even death. Symptoms due to the increased intracranial pressure include headaches, nausea, vomiting, papilledema, coma or sleepiness. Further elevation of intracranial pressure can result in uncal and/or cerebellar herniation.
