The aim of this study was to analyze outcome after VPS in eight patients in whom we used the new valves for avoiding overdrainage of cerebrospinal fluid.

Observations on ventricular and lumbar subarachnoid peritoneal shunts in hydrocephalic hifrocefalia. Br J Neurosurg ; 6: Vntriculo and Method Nine VPS procedures were performed in eight hydrocephalic patients between and Upward dislocation of peritoneal catheter into the ventricular cavity. Plain radiographs of the CSF draining system disclosed that the swelling consisted of the shunt peritoneal catheter that appeared coiled, being the distal part of the tubing missing from its expected course Figure.

Plain radiographs of the cervical region showed that the swelling was made up by a migrated and coiled peritoneal catheter. Ventriculopleural shunting for adult hydrocephalus. Neurosurgery, 23pp. Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs?

This statement is made comparing two groups of hydrocephalic infants submitted to surgery at the same Service and in the same conditions, with the same follow-up period; 4 the cases presented permit to state that at present time the ventriculoperitoneal shunt with valve is the most suitable surgical procedure for ventricuko.


Percutaneous placement of ventriculoatrial shunts in the pediatric population. The ninth case involved replacement of a previously obstructed valve. Results After a follow-up period of 22 hidrocefaliq all shunts were functioning well and the only patient with symptoms of hydrocephalus was the one who required valve replacement at six months.

He was warned about this possibility arising in the future. Arch Klin Chir,pp.

Symptomatic pleural collection of cerebrospinal fluid caused by a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. Valves newly designed to prevent overdrainage of cerebrospinal fluid give satisfactory results, such that VPS should be considered as an alternative to peritoneal drainage. Retrograde migration of ventriculoperitoneal shunt to the neck. Ventriculoatrial and ventriculopleural shunts VPS are alternatives to ventriculoperitoneal shunts for draining cerebrospinal fluid from patients with hydrocephalus.

Migration and extrusion of distal catheters have been reported through several organs and body orifices or through the cervical or abdominal wounds. How to cite this article.

Ventriculoperitoneal shunting used as a temporary diversion. University of Pennsylvania Press, Philadelphia, Subcutaneous coiling at the scalp adjacent to the burr-hole has also been illustrated in several cases 3,5, 6, J Neurosurg, 34pp.

Pediatr Neurosurg, 29pp. Past history revealed hidrocefaliw he had been operated, as a newborn, for myelomeningocele and given a VPS 3 weeks later. The use of the ventriculoperitoneal shunt has eliminated all cardiovascular-pulmonary epritoneal and reduced the number for surgical revisions.


Pediatr Neurosurg, 28pp. J Pediatr, 46pp. Others have also documented penetration of shunts within the cerebral ventricles 1,9,10,13, Neurosurg Rev ; As the patient was asymptomatic, he refused a surgical revision of the shunt.

Nine VPS procedures derivacionn performed in eight hydrocephalic patients between and Complicaciones de las derivaciones de LCR. Abdominal cerebrospinal fluid pseudocysts: Besides, infections involving the draining system are less severe and more easily controlled than those occurring in the vntriculo shunts.

Mechanical complications of the reservoirs and shunting devices in ventricular shunt systems. Even the valve itself or the reservoir has been found to penetrate within the skull 7. In all three cases, as in the one that we report now, the system contained a spring-reinforced Raimondi catheter.

Case report A year-old man was seen at the Outpatient Clinic for routine review of myelomeningocele hydrocephalus after having moved to our city. How effective are ventriculopleural shunts?.

Disconnection and downward migration of the distal ihdrocefalia within the peritoneal cavity used to be a frequent complication in the so-called 3-piece shunts, a problem that is now almost completely unknown due to the construct of unitized valves or shunts with soldered components.
