Following a shunt implantation, follow-up visits are necessary to evaluate whether unchanged or worsened symptoms can be corrected by shunt adjustment and also to discover any cases of shunt dysfunction requiring surgical shunt revision. Using the Likvor CELDA™️ Instrument in postoperative care can avoid many unnecessary operations and can optimise shunt functionality.
The CELDA Instrument lets you evaluate whether unchanged or worsened symptoms can be corrected by shunt adjustment and also to discover any cases of shunt dysfunction requiring surgical shunt revision.
Even improved patients can benefit with better adjustment of the shunt. In a pre- and postoperative evaluation with the automatic protocol it is easy to determine if a patient’s shunt works as intended.
A cerebral shunt is a medical device commonly used to treat hydrocephalus by relieving pressure on the brain caused by fluid accumulation.
Shunt systems require frequent monitoring and follow-up. Complications that may occur with shunt systems include:
Malfunctions can lead to serious complications, such as over- or under-draining of CSF. Over-draining occurs when CSF drains from ventricles at a faster rate than it’s produced. This can cause ventricles to collapse, which may lead to headaches or hemorrhage inside the brain. Under-draining allows CSF to accumulate on the brain and can cause symptoms of hydrocephalus to return.
