Effectiveness of shunt treatment for persons with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus report was published by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health at the end of May of 2018

18 Jun 2018

On the 30th of May of 2018, Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) has published a report "Effectiveness of shunt treatment for persons with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus: evidence base for a shared decision-making tool", which was earlier commissioned to NIPH by My treatment choices platform “Minebehandlingsvalg”. The main objective of the report was to find and summarize key findings from systematic reviews about the effects of shunts in the treatment of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus.

As a result, three relevant systematic reviews were identified, however, there were no any controlled studies that compared treatment with shunts versus no treatment for idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus. Hence, it was impossible to determine the effectiveness of shunts.

The report in Norwegian can be seen here.
