lateral ventriculo-superior sagittal sinus shunt, hydrocephalus, surgical method


From August 2016 to June 2018, a total of 7 patients underwent lateral ventriculo-superior sagittal shunt surgeries in our hospital. All cases were followed up for 3 months to 2 years after the surgeries. The results of their head CT scans or MRI scans indicated that the conition of hydrocephalus generally improved, and the symptoms of intracranial hypertension significantly improved or disappeared. The superior sagittal sinus shunt surgery for hydrocephalus is simple to operate and also safe and effective, and it’s an important method of treatment for hydrocephalus. This article described the specific surgical procedure for lateral ventriculo-superior sagittal shunt surgery in detail so that this surgical procedure can be better promoted.
