UNLABELLED Since 1990, 110 retrograde ventriculo-sinus (RVS) shunts were implanted; 98 patients (89.1%) benefited - 1 of them (0.9%) after shunt revision. The manifestations of high intra cranial pressure (ICP) disappeared, there were no problems related to improper cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage, and the transcranial Doppler (TCD) resistive index (RI) measurements decreased to within normal ranges.
