Biomechanics of Hydrocephalus


In this chapter, a state of the art of the biomechanics of hydrocephalus is carried out. Firstly, the history of the mathematical modeling of the condition is presented, with the contribution from every researcher analyzed. With the first works on the field dating back from the 1970s, numerous approaches have been used, be it of thermodynamical, mechanical, or electrical nature. The improvements in computational power also have allowed to make extensive use of the numerical tool: this has led to more realistic geometries (notably with the help of developments in medical imaging) and much more accurate assessments of the relevant physiological parameters. Secondly, an in-depth investigation of the most popular models aims to reveal their strengths and insufficiencies. This part also shows how to build a rigorous model for ventricular dynamics, along with its coupling to surrounding compartments. The way hydrocephalus manifests itself in the mathematical equations is evidenced, and an application to pediatric hydrocephalus is presented. \textcopyright Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.
