Intraventricular pressure dynamics in patients with ventriculopleural shunts: The aim of this study was to analyze outcome after VPS in eight patients in whom we used the new valves for avoiding overdrainage of cerebrospinal fluid. The accurate placement of the distal end of the shunt into the right atrium without X-ray control. The death of one patient 36 months after surgery was unrelated to pleural drainage. Material and Method Nine VPS procedures were performed in eight hydrocephalic patients between and Chest, 99pp.

Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? After a follow-up period of 22 months all shunts were functioning well and the only patient with symptoms of hydrocephalus was the one who required valve replacement at six months.

Plain radiographs of the CSF draining system disclosed that the swelling consisted of the shunt peritoneal catheter that appeared coiled, being the distal part of the tubing missing from its expected course Figure. We suggest that, given the multiplicity of CSF drainage systems, hidroceaflia possibility of shunt migration should be borne in mind in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with symptoms and signs of shunt malfunction.

Migration and extrusion of distal catheters have been reported through several organs and body orifices or through the cervical or abdominal wounds.

Symptomatic pleural collection of cerebrospinal fluid caused by a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. From December to November, 95 hydrocephalic infants have been operated upon using ventriculoperitoneal shunt with valve 88 cases with a Spitz-Holter valve, 6 cases with a Hakim valve and one case with a Pudenz-Heyer valve. Pseudocysts of the abdomen associated with ventriculoperitoneal shunts: Fibrothorax associated with a ventriculopleural shunt in a hydrocephalic child.

Evaluation of the ventriculo-peritoneal shunt with valve in the treatment of hydrocephalus

Inwe reported three patients with symptoms of shunt malfunction that were found to have a retrograde migration of the peritoneal catheter peritkneal the subcutaneous tissues of the chest wall 8. Upward migration of peritoneal tubing.


Discussion Several unusual complications due to the dislocation of the shunts components have been reported. Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use.

From this place downwards the shunt tubing could not be palpated.

Services on Demand Journal. A rare complication of the ventriculo-peritoneal shunt. No surgical morbidity or mortality was observed, and only one patient developed transitory signs of excessive cerebrospinal fluid drainage, which was corrected by regulating the magnetic valve gradient. Even the valve itself or the reservoir has been found to penetrate within the skull 7. After analysis of the surgical techniques as well as complications and results the following conclusions are stated: Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso.

Introduction Shunting of CSF constitutes the most frequent form of treatment for hydrocephalus. The ninth case involved replacement of a previously obstructed valve.
