Fluid dynamics of CSF in adult hydrocephalus is quite different compared to the conditions of hydrocephalus in infants (2). Main reasons for the difference between adult and infantile hydrocephalus are the closed cranial sutures and the physical properties of grey and especially of white matter in adults.
