Drainage and diversion of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through shunt systems is the most common treatment for hydrocephalus, but complications due to tissue obstruction of the catheter occur in up to 61% of patients. Although shunt systems have undergone limited technological advancements to resist mammalian cell adhesion, there is a need to further reduce adhesion that can exacerbate obstruction. The high intrinsic variability in clinical studies and an inability to predict chronic adhesion of… CONTINUE READING
