Ventricular shunting is the most widely accepted form of treatment of hydrocephalus. The placement of cerebrospinal fluid shunts has become one of the most common procedures in modern neurologic surgery. Despite significant improvements in shunt procedures, shunt complications remain common. These troubles are associated with significant adverse consequences, both medical and economic. Attempts to limit their incidence require a basic knowledge and understanding of the types of shunt failure and their respective management.
