Frequently Asked Questions Related to Vp Shunt

Before the Procedure (4 Questions):

You won't be able to see the catheter because it will be under your skin. However, you may be able to feel the shunt catheter along your neck. Once all the parts of the shunt are connected, it will start draining the excess CSF as needed to reduce the pressure in your brain.

It can last from a few days or weeks to many years. In adults we have seen them last for as long as 35 years. Over time the plastic tube can corrode and disintegrate, requiring a new shunt to be inserted.

There are different indications for programmed vs unprogrammed shunt, Programmed is usually done in elderly individuals and congenital hydrocephalus while unprogrammed is chosen for tumors, hydrocephalus and meningitis.

WHO regulation says it may require a change every 5 years so there are less chances of blockage.

During the Procedure (3 Questions):

Usually for 5 days.

The entire procedure takes about 90 minutes.

Usually for 5 days.

Once all the parts of the shunt are connected, it will start draining the excess CSF as needed to reduce the pressure in your brain.

Depending on the circumstances, a VP shunt can be temporary or permanent. If the cause of your hydrocephalus is idiopathic (unexplained), congenital (present from birth), or the result of a defect in the anatomy of the brain or spine, there is a strong chance that you will need to have your VP shunt for the long term.

No followup visit is required once patient has been reviewed for about 3 weeks

Most of the hydrocephalic patients will be required to keep their CSF shunt all life long. One of the advantages of this therapy is that it allows you to have a normal daily life. The shunt will restore the CSF circulation to regulate its flow.
