The most recent technology is a shunt valve
that is programmable, thus allowing the pressure to be adjusted.
Like the Sophy programmable valve, this ventricular shunt valve
was developed in response to the shortcomings of traditional valves, all of which operated at fixed pressures.
After CT scans in the RVH's famed neuro-unit, surgeons installed a Shunt valve
to relieve the pressure on the brain and later cut out a small tumour.
Provides products for the surgical treatment of central nervous system disorders, including hydrocephalic shunt valve
systems, neuro endoscopes and spinal fixation implants.
Patients who required EVD during the last 2 years of data collection had an inline shunt valve
of slightly higher pressure than their usual requirements placed into the ventricular catheter during routine ventriculostomy.

and drains to the neurosurgery service at the university hospital "October 12".
2) Outcomes may vary with different types of shunt valves
(low to high pressure, programmable) and shunt configurations (ventriculoperitoneal, ventriculatrial, and lumboperitoneal).
