7:28 am
hydrocephalus a debilitating condition in which excess fluid builds up in the brain it's left her with massive headaches and speech problems. everything changed because i was a sports woman before i spent twenty years doing sports and i sold clothing everything and that she hoped that an operation at mexico's flagship institute for new role a-g. noori surgery would help her but what she didn't know was that doctors would hope with an experimental and the north arise device. and not just her four hundred seventy three other patients who went to the facility we're also implanted they were essentially guinea pigs in an unofficial trial carried out over a period of fourteen years they never asked me anything before operating they said something to my husband but never that they were going to do an experiment.

7:30 am
it's just a tube it's technology from the fifty's it doesn't represent any sort of progress. by a published studies the inventor of the tube claimed it's precisely calculated diameter did regulate flow and stop fluid going back to the brain even when patients were climbed he said it worked better than valve eula devices. doctors told us several patients had to have the device replaced but it's unclear how many suffered from any ill effects the names of those implanted have been released a many came from poor remote communities. because it's a problem especially with patients without much money they feel ok and they go there last. year learned that was able to have another device fitted several years ago but the health continues to worsen at this point hopes of getting better or for justice a fading. all
