The reservoir presented an appropriate draining and filling function on examination, shown by computed tomography with the previously described ventricular morphology, with no transependymal migration of fluid and with an optimal proximal catheter location. Discussion The ventriculo-peritoneal1 shunt is considered as the standard accepted technique for hydrocephalus management.

[Reversible porencephalic cyst related to shunt dysfunction].

In accordance with preoperative protocol, an ultrasound scan of the abdomen was performed which confirmed the presence of gall bladder, with no electrolytes inside it nor inflammatory alterations.

Ventriculo-peritoneal shunts1 are most commonly used.

Last of all, we ought to note that the use of scales to assess the risk of SM, such as the SMRS, can help improve decision making in the ordering of diagnostic tests in children with VP shunts, which would reduce health care costs and decrease radiation exposure in these patients. Confirmed SM was defined as Vqlvula proven by surgery.
