Abstract

Hydrocephalus was induced in 10 mongrel dogs by injection of a silastic mixture into the basal cisterns. The posterior part of the left lateral ventricle was isolated from the remainder of the ventricular system by introducing Pantopaque into both lateral ventricles and the third ventricle with the animals in prone positions. Labeled albumin injected into the posterior part of the left lateral ventricle was shown to enter the blood stream before it was shown in the fourth ventricle or vallecula. This provides qualitative evidence of transventricular absorption.
