The hydrocephalus valve installation MIS or hydrocephalus valve placement MIS, a valve placement surgery (MIS) in the brain performed for the surgical restoration of hydrocephalus.
In particular, this neurosurgical procedure restores the local accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the cavities of the brain, passing the fluid to the peritoneal or cardiac cavity where it is absorbed.
To achieve this drainage, a special system (central tube, valve, drainage tube) called a "drain valve" or "ventricular" bypass is placed.
Hydrocephalus valve installation MIS or hydrocephalus valve placement MIS is performed with general anesthesia. The patient needs to stay in the hospital 1-3 days after the end of the procedure.
Note: Depending on its etiology, hydrocephalus can be treated endoscopically with endoscopic third ventriculostomy ETV.
