Ventricular system

practice for EEG registry

The ventricular foramen is also known as The foramen of monro
The aqueduct of sylvius (aka cerebral aqueduct) connects what two ventricles? The 3rd and 4th ventricles
What is the opening between each lateral ventricle and third ventricle the foramen of Monro (aka interventriclular foreman)
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is mainly produced by what structure? the choroid plexus in the lateral, third and fourth ventricles.
What 2 openings allow CSF to flow into the subarachnoid space? the foramina of luschka and the foramen of Magendie
What supporting cells found only in the ventricles are responsible for creation and circulation of CSF? ependymal cells
Name to types of hydrocephalus Communicating hydrocephalus- Non-communication hydrocephalus
Define hydrocephalus hydrocephalus means water on the brain. Due to closed skull there is no place for csf to go.
what is the function of the CSF to protect the brain and spinal cord by acting as a shock . CSF
State the pathway of the flow of CSF through the ventricular system starting with the ventricles Lateral ventricles-interventricular foramen>third ventricle-cerebral aqueduct->fourth ventricle- lateral and median aperture >subarachnoid space-arachnoid villi-subdural sinuses then venous blood.
Where does the absorption of CSF into the bloodstream take place? in the superior sagittal sinus through structures called arachnoid villi
communicating hydrocephalus non obstructive; occurs with a defect in excretion through the subarahnoid space; most commonly cause meningitis.
Non-communication hydrocephalus obstructive and obstacle prevents the flow of CSF through the ventricles. tumor
CSF is contained in the four ventricles, the subarachnoid space and the central canal of the spinal cord
