Hydrocaphalus came from D R Congo to Moolchand Medcity, India. 
Dr. Vikram Singh, Consultant, Neurosurgery, Moolchand Medcity, New Delhi said, “It is a very common ailment and usually happens in old age.  This patient came to us in drowsy and unconscious condition.  He was totally bed-ridden at that time and had problem in bodily movements.  We diagnosed him with Ventricular-peritoneal shunting (V P shunting) and operated upon him on November 27, 2010.  In this process, brain blockage caused due to hypertensive bleeds is drained through a tube and is diverted towards the stomach, from where it absorbs on its own to allow movement in the brain.” 
It was a team effort headed by Dr. Vikram Singh and took almost 1 ½ hours to operate.  The patient was discharged on 3rd day of the surgery.   
It is a very common ailment and usually happens in old age.  As a preventive measure, old people should keep a regular check on their blood pressure; it should be in the controlled limits.  BP check and CT scans should be done on regular basis in old age as timely intervention is always desirable and especially in old age. 
“My father was suffering from neurological problem since last year.  Inspite of the repeated efforts and treatment made in our country, not much improvement was seen.  We were referred to India for medical treatment at Moolchand hospital by our Indian friends.  My father underwent the neurosurgery and after that, there has been a significant improvement in his condition.  I highly appreciate Moolchand hospital and their staff for their constant support and world class facilities.  I will recommend Moolchand hospital to my friends and family in need” says son of Albert Kipata who is accompanying his father for the surgical procedure in India.
