The Likvor CELDA™ System is the first commercial instrument for better diagnostics of idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (iNPH or NPH). Through automated and standardised protocols the Likvor CELDA System assess the cerebrospinal fluid system (CFS) dynamics, helping caregivers to make the correct diagnosis for suspected iNPH patients in shorter time.
Likvor CELDA™️ System sets a new standard for diagnostics of disease linked to disturbances in the cerebrospinal fluid system, such as normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). Using automated test protocols and standardised data the Likvor CELDA System enhances care givers ability to include or exclude NPH from the diagnosis. NPH are often mistaken for other neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, making a correct and objective assessments a high priority.
Following a shunt implant operation the Likvor CELDA™ System makes it easy to assess the CSF dynamics and observe the functionality of the shunt device. The CELDA Instrument lets you evaluate whether unchanged or worsened symptoms can be corrected by shunt adjustment and also to discover any cases of shunt dysfunction requiring surgical shunt revision.
Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus, or iNPH, is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid, CSF, causing the ventricles of the brain to enlarge. Only 20% of iNPH patients are diagnosed and 15% get the correct treatment. When iNPH is suspected or if there is a need to exclude iNPH, this is the start of the usage of CELDA™️. Evidence before the CELDA™️ investigation include enlarged ventricles, and the triad of cardinal symptoms of NPH which include difficulty in balance and walking, dementia or cognitive impairment and urinary incontinence.

In 2005, guidelines for iNPH were published. A scheme for predicting shunt responsive idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus based on the evidentiary tables was presented.
This figure show percentage of improvement based on tests that are performed. The red square marks the infusion tests and their results. Tap-test, included in the CELDA Instrument, and CSF dynamics tests increases the percentage.
