Efficacy Study of Shunt Operation in Patients With Disorder of Consciousness of Post-traumatic Hydrocephalus (PTH) by Methods of Neuroelectrophysiology

Study Type: Observational
Participants: 65
Abstract
The symptoms of hydrocephalus containing consciousness condition with muscle tone in some patients will be relieved, after the cerebrospinal fluid release test is carried out. Neuroelectrophysiology in patients with disorders of consciousness of post-traumatic hydrocephalus (PTH) can establish the association with consciousness and muscle tone to a certain extent, and predict the shunt effect of PTH with disorders of consciousness.
