Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, a treatable dementia?
Sponsored by: CODMAN Neuro
Date: 25 March
Time: 2-3:30PM London/6-7:30PM Moscow
Don’t assume it’s Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s… it could be NPH!
Don't assume it's Alzheimer's or Parkinson's... it could be iNPH!
It is estimated that 20% of iNPH patients are not diagnosed and only 15% are treated correctly*. iNPH is often confused with Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases but iNPH can be treated. iNPH patients after a shunt surgery can come back to normal life.
The Codman Neuro webinar is designed for interaction about idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. The aim is to share a complete description of the disease and how to diagnose and treat it. Our renowned and multi-disciplinary faculty will discuss their views and share their extensive experience with the audience.
The course is ideal for consultant physicians (all specialties) who want to learn and share their experiences with their peers.
Please join this webinar to learn more about differential diagnosis of iNPH.

Key Learning Objectives
- INPH Triad of symptoms: Dementia, Gait disturbance and Urinary incontinence.
- iNPH patients are often diagnosed as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s patients. A well-interpreted MRI can help for a correct diagnosis.
- Shunting for iNPH has been shown to be clinically effective and good outcome is possible.
- A hydrocephalus shunt procedure for this condition has been shown to result in a cost saving of $184.3 million in Medicare expenditures over 5 years in the USA.
