Not only DESUN Hospital, Kolkata, India provides low cost VP Shunting surgical procedures like VP shunting for hydrocephalus and/or VP shunting to shunt cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), but also provides world class infrastructure and high-tech facilities for VP shunting procedure.
Shunts have been used to treat hydrocephalus for more than 50 years. The device allows excess cerebrospinal fluid to drain to another area of the body.
A shunt usually consists of two catheters and a one-way valve. The valve regulates the amount, flow direction, and pressure of cerebrospinal fluid out of the brain’s ventricles. As the pressure of cerebrospinal fluid inside the brain increases, the one-way valve opens and the excessive fluid drains to the downstream cavity. Typically, the fluid gets shunted (moved).
Inside the brain are spaces filled with a fluid. These spaces are called “ventricles”. The fluid in and around the brain is called “cerebrospinal fluid” or CSF. This fluid helps protect the brain and spinal cord from outer shocks by acting like a shock absorber. This fluid is made by special glands in the ventricles. The fluid circulates in the ventricles, flows down around the spinal cord, and flows around the brain. The fluid is then absorbed back into the blood stream by special drains. If the fluid is not absorbed as quickly as it is made, CSF builds up in the brain. This causes the ventricles to grow in size and press on the brain.
Building up of fluid in the brain is called “hydrocephalus”. This can occur at birth or later in life.
The symptoms of hydrocephalus involve:
Some cases of hydrocephalus can be treated by opening one of the ventricles to the surface of the brain. This does not require the placement of shunt. Your surgeon will determine whether this alternative procedure or a VP shunt is best for you.
The purpose of this surgery called ventriculoperitoneal, or VP Shunting, is to divert the excess fluid from the brain and put it in the abdomen, where it is absorbed.
