One hundred thirty consecutive cases of percutaneous lumboperitoneal shunting are reviewed. The efficacy of this procedure in the management of cerebrospinal fluid fistulas and bulging craniotomies is documented. The place of lumboperitoneal shunts in the management of communicating hydrocephalus, with particular emphasis on "normal pressure" hydrocephalus, is discussed.
