Brain shunts in adults
Please understand that our phone lines must be clear for urgent medical care needs. When this changes, we will update this web site. Please know that our vaccine supply is extremely small. A shunt is a hollow tube surgically placed in the brain or occasionally in the spine to help drain cerebrospinal fluid and redirect it to another location in the body where it can be reabsorbed. If the doctor finds that these problems improve after a lumbar puncture , it may mean that placing a shunt may be able to provide a longer-term benefit. Notify your neurosurgery team before any abdominal surgery, so proper precautions can be discussed with your surgeon.

Complications of Shunt Systems
Shunt Procedure | Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, MD
Hydrocephalus can be treated with a shunt system, and this treatment often includes complications. Shunt malfunction is a partial or complete blockage of the shunt that causes it to function intermittently or not at all. When a blockage occurs, CSF accumulates and can result in symptoms of untreated hydrocephalus. A shunt blockage from blood cells, tissue or bacteria can occur in any part of the shunt. Both the ventricular catheter — the portion of the tubing placed in the brain — and the distal part of the catheter — the tubing that drains fluid to another part of the body — can become blocked by tissue from the choroid plexus or ventricles. The distal part of the catheter is more often blocked in adults. Shunts are very durable, but their components can become disengaged or fractured as a result of wear or as a child grows, and occasionally they dislodge from where they were originally placed.
