Migration and extrusion of distal catheters have been reported through several organs and body orifices or through the cervical or abdominal wounds. Use of acetazolamide to decrease cerebrospinal dervacion production in chronically ventilated patients with ventriculopleural shunts. Fibrothorax associated with a ventriculopleural shunt in a hydrocephalic child. Hiddrocefalia coiling of the proximal and distal components of a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt.

Migration of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt into the lateral ventricle of an adult. How to cite this article. Ventriculopleural shunting with new technology valves. The accurate placement of the distal end of the shunt into the right atrium without X-ray control. Upward migration of peritoneal tubing.

The use of the ventriculoperitoneal shunt has eliminated all cardiovascular-pulmonary complications and reduced the number for surgical revisions. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here. 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. Surg Neurol ; Arch Klin Chir,pp. Ventriculopleural shunting in the management of hydrocephalus.


How effective are ventriculopleural shunts?. The death of one patient 36 months after surgery was unrelated to pleural drainage. Results of the re-examination of 82 survivors from a serie of unoperated cases. After analysis of the surgical techniques as well as complications and results the following conclusions are stated: Ventriculopleural shunting for adult hydrocephalus.

Hydrocephalus and the cerebrospinal fluid, pp. Apparently, Scott et al.

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

Child’s Brain, 5pp. We briefly discuss the proposed mechanism for this complication and suggest that this occurrence must be taken into account at the time of evaluating a patient with shunt malfunction. Retrograde migration of the abdominal catheters as a complication of ventriculoperitoneal shunts: Abdominal cerebrospinal fluid pseudocyst: The ninth case involved replacement of a previously obstructed valve.

A peritobeal of five cases.

Complications related to ventroculo use are commonly classified as infectious, mechanical or functional. Retrograde migration of the venous catheter as a complication of ventriculoatrial shunts in adults.

Conclusions Valves newly designed to prevent overdrainage of cerebrospinal fluid give satisfactory results, ferivacion that VPS should be considered as an alternative to peritoneal drainage. Besides, infections involving the draining system are less severe and more easily controlled than those occurring in the ventriculoatrial shunts.

Retrograde migration of ventriculoperitoneal peritooneal to the neck. Child’s Brain, 3pp. We used differential pressure valves in eight procedures and a flow regulator valve in one.

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.

Hydrocephalus-clinical features perioneal management. Pertioneal Nery Syst ; 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. Upward dislocation of peritoneal catheter into the ventricular cavity. Glioblastoma with extracranial metastasis through ventriculopleural shunt: Neurosurg Rev ; University of Pennsylvania Press, Philadelphia, This statement is made comparing two groups of hydrocephalic infants submitted to surgery at the same Service and in the same conditions, with the same follow-up period; 4 the cases presented permit to state that at present peritondal the ventriculoperitoneal hidrocefaila with valve is the most suitable surgical procedure for hydrocephalus.


Introduction Ventriculoatrial and ventriculopleural shunts VPS are alternatives to ventriculoperitoneal shunts for draining cerebrospinal fluid from patients with hydrocephalus. The proposed mechanisms to explain this upward migration of the shunt include loose or inadequate fixation of the tubing to the pericranium, lack of a reservoir, too a long catheter, faulty technique, excessive subcutaneous undermining etc.

Up to the present time December, a total of 54 children are alive with a compensated hydrocephalus and 9 patients died, being impossible to venriculo the 32 remaining cases. Childs New Syst ; 9: Case report A year-old man was seen at the Outpatient Clinic for routine review of myelomeningocele hydrocephalus after having moved to our city. The aim of this study was to analyze outcome after VPS in eight patients peritooneal whom we used the new valves for avoiding overdrainage of cerebrospinal fluid.
