A brain shunt is used to drain excess fluid off of the brain. It is meant to relieve the pressure caused by the build up of excess fluid.
The shunt used for a person who has hydrocephalus ("water on the brain") is not called a "value shunt". It is usually called a "ventriculo-peritoneal shunt" or "VP shunt" for short. Sometimes a "ventriculo-atrial shunt" or "VA shunt" is used instead.
A shunt is inserted in the head to relieve water pressure on the brain.
I had a friend who had a shunt in their brain and the doctor said if he ever had pains he should go to A&E immediately because it has probably moved and is lodging itself further into the brain and has caused internal bleedinggo to A&E!!!
The ventricular shunt tube is placed to drain fluid from the ventricular system in the brain to the cavity of the abdomen or to the large vein in the neck (jugular vein).
surgical installation of a shunt. A shunt is a tube connecting the ventricles of the brain to an alternative drainage site, usually the abdominal cavity
The Wade-Dahl-Till (WDT) valve is a cerebral shunt developed in 1962 by hydraulic engineer Stanley Wade, author Roald Dahl and neurosurgeon Kenneth Till. In 1960, Dahl's son Theo developed hydrocephalus after being struck by a car. A standard Holter shunt was installed to drain excess fluid from his brain; however the shunt jammed too often, causing pain and blindness, risking brain damage and requiring emergency surgery. Till determined that debris accumulated in the hydrocephalic ventricles could clog the slits in the Holter valves, especially with patients, such as Theo, who had had bleeding in the brain.
In long shunt the shunt field winding is in parallel to both generator and series field. In short shunt the shunt field is in parallel to generator only.
The word 'shunt' is both a noun (shunt, shunts) and a verb (shunt, shunts, shunting, shunted).Examples:He had to have a heart shunt put in. (noun)The engineer will shunt the train onto that track instead. (verb)
