|Official Title:||Neurocognitive Outcomes and Changes in Brain and Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) Volume After Treatment of Post-Infectious Hydrocephalus (PIH) in Ugandan Infants by Shunting Versus ETV/CPC|
|Study Start Date :||April 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||September 2020|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||March 2021|
Active Comparator: Chhabra Shunt Placement
The shunting arm will comprise a standard frontal approach ventriculoperitoneal shunt using a silastic Chhabra system.
Device: Chhabra Shunt Placement
Active Comparator: ETV/CPC
The Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy/Choroid Plexus Cauterization (ETV/CPC) arm will comprise a standard frontal approach with flexible endoscopy.
- Change of Age-normed Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID)-III scores [ Time Frame: 12 months and 24 months post treatment ]Neurocognition will be measured using the BSID-III Cognitive Scale. Change will be assessed at 24 months post treatment from baseline score (12 months post treatment).
- Brain Volume [ Time Frame: 12 months, 24 months, and 5 years post treatment ]Volume unit of measure is cubic millimeters. Volume is measured using CT scans.
- CSF Volume [ Time Frame: 12 months, 24 months, and 5 years post treatment ]Volume unit of measure is cubic millimeters. Volume is measured using CT scans.
- Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales [ Time Frame: 5 years post treatment ]The primary purpose of the VABS is to assess the social abilities of school age children.
