Transcranial Doppler sonography (TCCD) enables to assess selected haemodynamic parameters of cerebral circulation in physiological and pathological conditions. TCCD is a suitable method for evaluating of cerebral circulation in neonates and infants with hydrocephalus. The assessment of selected Doppler parameters of cerebral vessels helps in an indication and appropriate timing of drainage procedure. The method is also convenient for postoperative monitoring of drainage procedure success and a function of drainage system or endoscopic third ventriculostomy.
