Migration of Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt into a Hernia Sac: An Unusual Complication of Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Surgery in Children.

We report 2 cases of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt migration into an inguinal hernia sac. In both cases hernia manifested itself on the right side in late infancy. We attempted to analyse the anatom...

Preventing Distal Catheter Obstruction in Laparoscopic Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Placement in Adults: The "Falciform Technique".

Distal obstruction of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunts is a major problem in the treatment of hydrocephalus. To avoid this complication, we describe a simple method using the falciform ligament to pla...

Hemodialysis in children with ventriculoperitoneal shunts: prevalence, management and outcomes.

Hemodialysis (HD) in children with a concomitant ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) is rare. Registry data suggest that peritoneal dialysis with a VPS is safe, but little is known about HD in the presen...

Clinical and ultrasonographic criteria for using ventriculoperitoneal shunts in newborns with myelomeningocele.

Objective Hydrocephalus is one of the main complications associated with myelomeningocele (MM). This study aimed to identify clinical and ultrasonographic criteria for using ventriculoperitoneal (VP) ...

High-Pitch Low-Dose Whole-Body Computed Tomography for the Assessment of Ventriculoperitoneal Shunts in a Pediatric Patient Model: An Experimental Ex Vivo Study in Rabbits.

The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic value of whole-body low-dose (LD) computed tomography (CT) for the detection of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt complications in pediatric patients c...

Retrospective Analysis of Clinical Features in Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Infectionsin Adults

The objectives of this study are: - To describe the incidence of clinical features in adults with internal ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt infections, - To determine the...

Bedside Ultrasound to Measure Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter in Pediatric CSF Shunts

Bedside ultrasound in the emergency department is useful for quick assessments of patients. One growing use is to measure the optic nerve sheath diameter of patients for whom increased pre...

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...

Comparison of Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter Measured by Ultrasonography Before and After Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Surgery in Adult Patients With Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is a disturbance of cerebrospinal fluid production, flow and absorption leading to intracranial hypertension. Assessment of the change in intracranial pressure after ventricu...

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
