I can hear my shunt-audible noises associated with CSF shunts in hydrocephalic patients.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts are life-long implants, and patients have reported anecdotally on noises associated with their shunts. There is, however, a marked lack of information regarding acoust...

Hidden Devices in the School Setting: What the Nurse Needs to Know About Shunts.

The role of school nurse today not only includes making a thorough assessment of the child but also the knowledge and skill to understand hidden medical devices. As of 2011, there were approximately 1...

A Rare Case of Repeated Migration and Transurethral Extrusion of Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt.

Bladder migration and transurethral extrusion is an extremely rare complication of ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt. Only eight cases have been reported in the English literature since 1995. We report ...

Traumatic intracranial displacement of the ventriculoperitoneal valve chamber in a child-a report of 2 cases.

We present two cases of traumatic intracranial migration of the ventriculoperitoneal (VPS) valve chamber without malfunction of the system. In both patients, a shunt reservoir was surgically repositio...

Pharmacokinetics of testosterone cream applied to scrotal skin.

Scrotal skin is thin and has high steroid permeability, but the pharmacokinetics of testosterone via the scrotal skin route has not been studied in detail. The aim of this study was to define the phar...

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...

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...

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...

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)
