Objective: Kaolin-induced hydrocephalus is a well-established small-animal model. To evaluate human implants in vivo, however, small-animal models are not sufficient. Assigning the experimental design to bigger animals is not always feasible since one has to keep in mind that species-dependent characteristics[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
