Abstract

Abstract There is no standard of care for cerebrospinal (CSF) diversion in children with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), nor understanding of survival impact. We evaluated CSF diversion characteristics in children with DIPG to determine incidence, indications and potential impact on survival. Data was extracted from subjects registered in the International DIPG registry (IDIPGR). IDIPGR team personnel obtained clinical and radiographic data from the registry database and when appropriate, abstracted additional data from individual medical records. Univariable analyses were performed using the Fisher’s exact test or Wilcoxon rank sum test. Survival was estimated using the Kaplan-Meie..
