#Codman Neuro supports Bertil Romner Memorial #Hydrocephalus Research Prize @Hydro2014 @JNJCares @JNJNews
Introduction of Grant to Support Research in Hydrocephalus
Codman Neuro*, part of DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson, were proud to support the introduction of the Bertil Romner Memorial Hydrocephalus Research Prize, a grant to support further research into Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. The announcement was made at the sixth meeting of the International Society for Hydrocephalus and Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders (ISHCSF), where applicants were invited to submit research proposals to the scientific committee for 2015/16 projects. The successful applicant will be awarded the grant at the ISHCSF meeting 2015, taking place in Calgary, Canada.
Richard Edwards, 2014 Congress President and ISHCSF Committee member, explained the research grant will be awarded in memory of Professor Bertil Romner, a global thought leader and lecturer on the neurological condition who sadly passed away in 2013. ‘This generous support from Codman Neuro will facilitate the developments of new areas of research into the diagnosis and treatment of hydrocephalus, a condition that affects children and adults of all ages. The Prize will help support research into a number of types of hydrocephalus including Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH), a reversible cause of falls and dementia in the elderly, where research is needed to better identify sufferers that will benefit from treatment. The prize will also support research into Post-haemorrhagic hydrocephalus, which affects premature infants and is associated with high rates of disability in adult life, where research is needed to improve the survival of CSF shunt devices and reduce the need for repeat surgery in childhood.’
Normal Pressure Hyrdocephalus (NPH) is a neurological condition that affects approximately 2 in every 100,000 people (source). Characterized by the excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid that causes brain ventricles to enlarge and stretch nerve tissue, symptoms can include gait disturbance, cognitive impairment and incontinence, symptoms that are often attributed to Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s or advancing age, and consequently it is thought may be under/mis-diagnosed (Source).
In addition to the support for the research award, Codman Neuro also sponsored a one-day educational symposium for clinicians with an interest in dementia, falls and general practice, featuring a multi disciplinary faculty from across the world who discussed identification, treatment and epidemiology of the condition and concluded with a round table debate.
‘We are proud to be able to sponsor this satellite educational programme and research grant – we hope it will aid in the advancement of identification and treatment of this largely unknown condition,’ said Bertrand L’Huillier, Director Codman Neuro EMEA.
