Ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) is a well-known procedure in the neurosurgical field. However, it has high complication and reoperation rates. Abdominal pseudocyst (APC) formation is a rare complication of VPS with reports in the literature varying from 4 to 10%. In this article, we report a simple and effective technique, with no additional cost, to avoid APC formation by making small multiple slits along the length of the peritoneal catheter.

Abstract

Ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) is a well-known procedure in the neurosurgical field. However, it has high complication and reoperation rates. Abdominal pseudocyst (APC) formation is a rare complication of VPS with reports in the literature varying from 4 to 10%. In this article, we report a simple and effective technique, with no additional cost, to avoid APC formation by making small multiple slits along the length of the peritoneal catheter.
