This book discusses all aspects of the effects of spina bifida and hydrocephalus on the fetus, the child, and the adolescent. Chapters review current neurosurgical techniques, perinatal death and malformation, together with the effects of spina bifida and hydrocephalus on behaviour and education. The book thus presents an up-to-date view on the current diagnosis, investigation and treatment of these two conditions.

Over the past decade there have been great advances in the prognosis and treatment of neural tube defects. New surgical techniques can increase the life expectancy and improve the quality of life of affected individuals, while recent research into vitamin supplementation offers the prospect of hydrocephalus and spina bifida becoming largely a thing of the past. The new study brings together these medical advances, and also deals with the practical issues which every specialist, student, family doctor, and even the worried parent, needs to know. For maximum clarity the chapters are arranged chronologically, dealing with all the problems that may occur from the prenatal period to adolescence.
