Persistent hydrocephalus due to postural activation of a ventricular shunt anti-gravity device.

Abstract

The ever present need to balance over drainage with under drainage in hydrocephalus has required innovations including adjustable valves with antigravity devices. These are activated in the vertical position to prevent siphoning. We describe a group of bedridden patients who presented with unexplained under drainage caused by activation of antigravity shunt… (More)
