Two episodes of ventriculoperitoneal shunt migration in a patient with idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Introduction. Ventriculoperitoneal shunts are often placed as treatment for refractory idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Dislodgement and migration of the distal portion of the shunt are more comm...

Hepatic cerebrospinal fluid pseudocyst: A rare complication of ventriculoperitoneal shunt.

Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunts are among the most frequently performed operations in the management of hydrocephalus. Hepatic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pseudocyst is a rare but important complicatio...

Urinary bladder stone complicating ventriculovesical shunt.

The standard treatment for hydrocephalus is either a ventriculoperitoneal or a ventriculo-atrial shunt. However, these conventional shunts may be associated with considerable complications and high re...

Ultrasound prenatal diagnosis of inguinal scrotal hernia and contralateral hydrocele.

Fetal inguinal scrotal hernia is a rare condition resulting in an abnormal embryonic process of the tunica vaginalis. We report a case of ultrasound prenatal diagnosis of inguinal scrotal hernia assoc...

Ventriculoperitoneal shunt infection with Mycobacterium fortuitum: a rare offending organism.

Postsurgical infection is one of the greatest potential morbidities of ventriculoperitoneal shunt surgery. The majority of infections can be linked to contamination with skin flora at the time of surg...

Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy (ETV) Versus Ventriculoperitoneal Shunting (VPS) for the Surgical Management of Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

The purpose of this study is to test and compare the efficacy of Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy with shunting of Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)for treatment for patients of Normal pressure Hy...

Optimizing Treatment of Post-hemorrhagic Ventricular Dilation in Preterm Infants

Intraventricular hemorrhage remains the most frequent, severe neurological complication of prematurity, occurring in 25-30% of preterm infants. Post-hemorrhagic ventricular dilation (PHVD...

A Migration and Bone Density Study Comparing 2 Types of Bone Cement in the OptiPac Bone Cement Mixing System

The goal of this scientific study is to determine whether there are differences in early migration and prosthesis-near bone density when a standard knee prosthesis is fixed with Refobacin ...

3D Sonographic Measurement of Volumetric Flow in Transjugular Intrahepatic Porto-Systemic Shunts

Malfunction of implantation shunts, valves, etc., and prosthesis loosening, migration, and breaking.

Phenomenon of cell-mediated immunity measured by in vitro inhibition of the migration or phagocytosis of antigen-stimulated LEUKOCYTES or MACROPHAGES. Specific CELL MIGRATION ASSAYS have been developed to estimate levels of migration inhibitory factors, immune reactivity against tumor-associated antigens, and immunosuppressive effects of infectious microorganisms.

Specific assays that measure the migration of cells. They are commonly used to measure the migration of immune cells in response to stimuli and the inhibition of immune cell migration by immunosuppressive factors.

Assays that measure the rate of migration of MACROPHAGES. They may involve the use hollow plastic chamber, sealed at one end with a porous membrane and suspended over a larger well which may contain CHEMOTACTIC FACTORS. The migration of cell through the pores to the other side of the membrane is measured.

Surgical creation of a communication between a cerebral ventricle and the peritoneum by means of a plastic tube to permit drainage of cerebrospinal fluid for relief of hydrocephalus. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
