Hydrocephalus Birth Injury Cases
Representation from an Iowa Birth Injury Lawyer
Hydrocephalus is the most common type of birth injury there is, affecting
1 in 500 births. Because of delayed diagnosis by medical personnel, especially
damaging effects of hydrocephalus can occur. If your child has suffered
brain damage due to improper diagnosis by your treating doctor or another
medical professional, it is crucial that you contact an Iowa medical malpractice attorneyto assist you with preparing a strong and aggressive case.
Hydrocephalus is a condition which is a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid
(CSF) on the part of the brain that controls the central nervous system.
Due to this fluid buildup, a blockage is created, causing the brain to
swell and the head and face to expand. This pressure inside the brain
can lead to permanent brain damage. CSF fluid is supposed to flow freely
throughout the brain and spinal column. When the CSF does not circulate
and excessive buildup in the brain occurs, this can put pressure on the
brain, pushing it against the skull and damaging vital brain tissue.
