New surgical techniques can increase the life expectancy and improve the quality of life of affected individuals, while recent research into vitamin supplementation offers the prospect of hydrocephalus and spina bifida becoming largely a thing of the past. The new study brings together these medical advances, and also deals with the practical issues which every specialist, student, family doctor, and even the worried parent, needs to know. For maximum clarity the chapters are arranged chronologically, dealing with all the problems that may occur from the prenatal period to adolescence."@en ;
