Objective to explore the clinical value of ventriculoperitoneal shunt combined with simultaneous cranioplasty in the treatment of traumatic brain injury combined with hydrocephalus. Method: Select a total of 100 patients who suffered from traumatic brain with hydrocephalus and admitted to our hospital from January 2018 to February 2020. They were randomly divided into observation group (ventriculoperitoneal shunt combined with simultaneous cranioplasty) and control group (ventriculoperitoneal shunt combined with selective cranioplasty) with 50 patients each. The treatment of the two groups was compared. Results: Compared with the control group (78%), the total effective rate of the observation group (94%) was higher (P < 0.05); after treatment, the Fugl-Meyer score (20.75 ± 2.56) and Barthel index score (63.18 ± 6.38) of the observation group were higher than those of the control group (P < 0.05); meanwhile, compared with the control group (18%), the complication rate of the observation group (8%) was lower (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Ventriculoperitoneal shunt combined with simultaneous cranioplasty can enhance the therapeutic effect, improve the upper limb motor function and daily life ability of patients with brain trauma and hydrocephalus, and reduce the occurrence of complications, which has high effectiveness and safety.
