Catheters, Spinal, Intrathecal, Lumbar, Hydrocephalic

Definition : Intrathecal lumbar catheters designed to drain cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the lumbar subarachnoid space. These catheters are usually small-internal-diameter (e.g., 0.7 mm) silicone elastomer tubes; they are available either as "T" (intended to reduce the risk of migration) or straight tubes. Lumbar hydrocephalic catheters are typically connected through a valve and/or a reservoir to another catheter that drains the CSF in the peritoneum; these devices as a whole are known as lumboperitoneal shunts. These catheters are used as part of a lumboperitoneal shunt in treating children and adults with obstruction of the CSF pathways, accompanied by an accumulation of CSF within the skull (hydrocephalus), as well as for benign intracranial hypertension treatment.
