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...

Case series of ventriculopleural shunts in adults: a single-center experience.

OBJECTIVE The peritoneal cavity is widely used as the destination of choice for cerebrospinal fluid shunts. Various alternative sites have been used, particularly in the presence of certain contraindi...

Management of Hydrocephalus with Ventriculoperitoneal Shunts: Review of 109 Cases of Children.

Treatment of hydrocephalus by shunting procedure is associated with variable outcomes, depending on the setting. Results from some published series in sub-Saharan Africa are not as good and various re...

Latent Progression Pediatric Scrotal Schwannoma. A Case Report.

We report the case of a 24 year old patient being diagnosed with scrotal schwannoma initially presenting at age 9. To our knowledge, this is the first case with such an early onset. The patient underw...

Does Ventriculoperitoneal Shunting Improve Thyroid Hormone Levels in Hydrocephalic Newborns?

The aim of this report was to investigate the effect of ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion for the treatment of hydrocephalus on thyroid hormones in the first 3 months of life.

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)
