Abstract :
Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt is the standard management of hydrocephalus. A wide range of complications have been reported for this procedure including malfunction, infection, pseudocyst, peritoneal complications, and catheter extrusion[1]. The incidence of distal shunt migration has been reported 10% with defined causes[2]. Improvements in surgical techniques and the development of silastic shunt tubing have been helpful adjuncts in reducing the incidence of abdominal complications[3]. We present two children with umbilical hernia and abdominal complications of VP shunts.
