Real time US –guided ventricular catheterisation: a single centre retrospective audit

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Suboptimal shunt or external ventricular device (EVD) catheter placement can result in significant morbidity, requiring system revision and consequently prolonging in-hospital stay. Multiple incorrect trajectories can potentially cause further complications and neurological deficits. While experienced operators can achieve relatively high success rates with the craniometric technique, the failure rates can be even greater than 20%, in certain studies.
