What is VP Shunt (ventriculoperitoneal shunt)?

Overview: A ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt is a medical device that relieves pressure on the brain caused by fluid accumulation and the process involved is called as VP shunting. VP shunting is a surgical procedure that primarily treats a condition called hydrocephalus.
Hydrocephalus is a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) builds up within the ventricles (fluid-containing cavities) of the brain and may increase pressure within the head.  Your doctor will place VP shunts inside one of your brain’s ventricles to divert fluid away from the brain and restore normal flow and absorption of CSF.
