"W" cubed

Went to see a nice 68 year old man recently who had undergone a shunt procedure (ventriculoperitoneal) about a year ago for normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH).

It was a success (his gait significantly improved).

The triad to remember for NPH is urinary incontinence, gait disturbance and cognitive impairment-also known as “wet, wobbly and wacky.”
