Brain Drain (2001) - Water on the brain, or hydrocephalus, causes the head to swell and can be lethal unless fluid is drained off - a new invention from Mexico is making that process simpler and safer.
When drainage ducts in the ventricles of the brain become blocked, fluid builds up, where it can cause anything from headaches to periods of unconsciousness. Now, a Mexican doctor has invented a new artificial drainage system that can be fitted to chronic sufferers for life, preventing the need to come in and out of surgery.
