- •Initial gait parameters are insufficient to identify shunt-responsive iNPH patients.
- •Most iNPH patients require several days of CSF drainage before symptoms improve.
- •Inclusion of urinary and cognitive changes increases lumbar drain predictive value.
- •The level of improvement after lumbar drain trial correlates with that after shunting.
