The primary treatment for DWM and associated hydrocephalus is the placement of a ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt
It depends. Most Ventriculoperitoneal ( VP for short) shunts may be implanted for life for the treatment of hydrocephalus ( excessive cerebral spinal fluid, or CSF, build up in the brain ). The type of shunt and the health problem it is treating will ultimately determine the length of implantation.
The meaning of the abbreviation VPS, in the healthcare field, depends on the subject matter. Some examples follow. Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis Ventilation/Perfusion Scan Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Verbal Pain Scale Visable Pleural Space
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)
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.
What is advantages of Aryton Shunt??

In electrical engineering, shunt means 'parallel'.
Shunt means parallel only..................
Tube-shunt surgery, or Seton tube shunt glaucoma surgery, is a surgical method to treat glaucoma
'Shunt' is an archaic term for 'parallel', so a shunt resistor is connected in parallel with another device. For example, a shunt resistance is used in moving-coil ammeters, so that most of the load current passes through the shunt resistor, rather than the moving coil. So, in this context, yes -a shunt is a bypass resistance.
'Shunt' is an archaic term, meaning 'in parallel with'. So a 'shunt coil' is connected 'in parallel' with... With what, of course, depends upon what sort of device you are talking about. For example the field coil of a d.c. shunt-connected motor has its field winding connected in parallel ('shunt') with the supply.
Applications of Voltage shunt feedback amplifier?
'Shunt' is an archaic term for 'parallel', so a 'shunt motor' is a motor whose field winding is connected in parallel with its armature winding.
Does the ductus ateriosus serve as a shunt in a fetal pig?
Ventricular shunt relieves hydrocephalus, a condition in which the ventricles are enlarged.
