Neonatal and Congenital Anomaly Neurosurgery Program
Our pioneering research
Dr. Warf and his Boston Children's Hospital colleagues have identified that Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy/Choroid Plexus Cauterization (ETV/CPC) prevents shunt dependence in many children, including those with no urgent access to subspecialty care for shunt malfunction - particularly in resource-limited environments.
Our research is now translating to optimal treatment selection and outcomes for children with hydrocephalus worldwide.
Dr. Warf is currently involved in the following clinical trials:
Prospective Trial of Combined Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy and Choroid Plexus Cauterization (ETV/CPC) for Treatment of Post-hemorrhagic Hydrocephalus of Prematurity (PHHP) [Protocol #: X10-09-0449]
- Outcomes in Patients Undergoing Surgical Intervention for Chiari Type I Malformation with Syringomyelia [Protocol #: X09-12-0639]
