Summary

The provider creates a shunt, or tube, leading from the ventricles of the brain to the atria, jugular veins, or auricular processes to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF. Providers perform the procedure to treat diseases, such as hydrocephalus, where the ventricles enlarge with CSF. The provider may use an endoscope to perform the procedure.
