Should ventriculoatrial shunting be the procedure of choice for normal-pressure hydrocephalus?
Baltsavias et al., "Ventriculoatrial shunts in adults, incidence of infection, and significant risk factors: a single-center experience," World Neurosurgery, vol.
A continuacion, describiremos el caso de un adulto joven, valorado en el servicio de urgencias del Hospital Universitario San Ignacio por el grupo de la Unidad de Nefrologia, que se presento con un cuadro poco comun de nefritis por derivacion, dada la edad del paciente y el tiempo de permanencia de la valvula ventriculoatrial, y en quien se confirmo el diagnostico mediante biopsia renal con posterior mejoria clinica y paraclinica con el retiro de la valvula, sin requerir manejo con antibioticos.
The rhythm is usually incessant and, in cases with ventriculoatrial (VA) dissociation, the diagnosis is readily made (Figure 5C).
However, children with ventriculoatrial shunts do require antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent bacterial endocarditis.
Convalescence was marked by hydrocephalus that required a ventriculoatrial shunt.
The ventriculoperitoneal (V-P) shunt has, for the most part, replaced the ventriculoatrial (VA) shunt due to the lessened likelihood of infection or clotting.
As may be anticipated, patients with single-chamber ventricular pacemakers are most at risk--particularly those patients with intact ventriculoatrial conduction (when atria and ventricles contract together).
Medical treatment includes Acetazolamide, Steroids, Topiramate, Frousemide and surgical treatment options include Optic Nerve Sheath Fenestration (ONSF) or CSF shunt (lumboperitoneal shunts, ventriculo-peritoneal shunts, or ventriculoatrial shunt).3,6,7
Las derivaciones mas usadas son la ventriculo-peritoneal y la ventriculoatrial (se remplaza la cavidad peritoneal por la auricula derecha).
