Ventriculoperitoneal shunting surgery is surgery to treat excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the cavities (ventricles) of the brain (hydrocephalus).
This procedure is performed in an operating room under general anesthesia. The duration of the operation is from 1 to 1.5 hours. A tube (catheter) is inserted from the head into the abdomen to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The pressure valve and anti-siphon device ensure that the required amount of liquid is drained.
This operation is performed when there is too much cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain and spinal cord - hydrocephalus. This causes higher than normal pressure on the brain, which can cause brain damage.
Babies can be born with hydrocephalus and other birth defects of the spine or brain. Hydrocephalus can also occur in older people.
Shunting surgery should be performed immediately after the diagnosis of hydrocephalus.
The procedure is performed as follows:
