Using individualized opening pressure to determine the optimal setting of an adjustable proGAV shunt in treatment of hydrocephalus in infants

Abstract

The aim of the study was to describe the authors’ experiences with the adjustable gravitational proGAV shunt system in treating infants’ hydrocephalus. The proGAV was implanted in 29 infants (11 boys and18 girls, median age 9 months) with hydrocephalus of various origins between January 2010 and June 2014. The opening pressure was chosen based on the… (More)
