Endoscopic third ventriculostomy for ventriculoperitoneal shunt malfunction: does shunt duration play a role?

Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is now widely used to manage ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) malfunctions, but outcome predictors are still debated. Different opinions exist about the prognost...

Relationship between the location of the ventricular catheter tip and the ventriculoperitoneal shunt malfunction.

Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt is the most common neurosurgical procedure to treat obstructive and communicating hydrocephalus, but failures are frequent. The most common causes of shunt failure are ...

First-in-Human Experience With Integration of a Hydrocephalus Shunt Device Within a Customized Cranial Implant.

Implantable shunt devices are critical and life saving for hydrocephalus patients. However, these devices are fraught with high complication rates including scalp dehiscence, exposure, and extrusion. ...

Ventriculoperitoneal shunts: What nurses need to know.

A ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) is the most common type of implanted cerebrospinal fluid shunt system. Nurses may care for patients who have undergone shunt placement or revision. This article disc...

Simple technique to avoid complications of head and neck movements in children undergoing ventriculoperitoneal shunt.

Hydrocephalous in children is usually due to the result of obstruction to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow or impaired CSF resorption. The most common choice for cerebrospinal fluid diversion in childre...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical fistulization of the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear with mastoid, subarachnoid or cochlear shunt. This procedure is used in the treatment of MENIERE DISEASE.

Surgical venous shunt between the portal and systemic circulation to effect decompression of the portal circulation. It is performed primarily in the treatment of bleeding esophageal varices resulting from portal hypertension. Types of shunt include portacaval, splenorenal, mesocaval, splenocaval, left gastric-caval (coronary-caval), portarenal, umbilicorenal, and umbilicocaval.

Surgical portasystemic shunt between the portal vein and inferior vena cava.

Surgical shunt allowing direct passage of blood from an artery to a vein. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
