We unite all Lithuanian people with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and their families.
People born with Spina Bifida represent a variety of cases, with the lower part of the body below the level of the spinal cord with hernia violations – a total or partial paralysis of the legs, bladder and bowel lesions partial or complete anesthesia of the skin, orthopedic problems. Most people and hydrocephalus. However, despite all the health problems, most of these people have normal intellectual ability, perfectly adapted to their disease and live a full life, having permanent doctors (neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedists, urologists and Rehabilitologist) supervision.
Spina Bifida is a neural tube defect that occurs the formation of the spine during the first four weeks of pregnancy. Exact Spina Bifida is not the cause. Scientists suspect that the reasons may be different. Studies show that inadequate consumption of folic acid and vitamin B, poor maternal nutrition during pregnancy is a major factor causing Spina Bifida.
Hydrocephalus (water) is a condition in which the main feature is the excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. The main causes of hydrocephalus are: premature birth, Spina Bifida, meningitis, cysts, tumors, and genetic diseases.
