Abstract

Sequential measurements of ventricular sizes and Doppler variables of anterior cerebral artery (ACA) by duplex color ultrasound were performed on 14 ventriculomegalic infants (mean age: 3.4 months): 9 were postmeningitic, 3 posthemorrhagic, and 2 congenital. According to changes of the frontal horn radius (FHR) after shunts, the FHR was decreased > 30% (n = 9) in group I and ≤10% (n = 5) in group II. Before shunting, Pourcelot index (PI) in group I was greater than in group II (P
