The cerebrospinal fluid present in the central nervous system plays an important role in the physiological activities and protection of the brain. Disruptions of CSF flow lead to different forms of a disease known as hydrocephalus, characterized by a significant increment of the ventricular space. In acute hydrocephalus the Sylvius aqueduct is blocked and ventricular pressure is greatly increased.
