  • Causa
    The tubing within the system that drains csf may leak or disconnect from the joints. leakage and tube separations may result in over- or under-drainage of csf from the ventricular system or introduction of air into the ventricular system (pneumocephalus). this may result in collapsed ventricles, subdural bleeding, or an inability to properly control elevated intracranial pressure. the tubing disconnection or leakage may also increase the risk of ventriculitis. if undetected or untreated each of these events may cause severe brain injury, which may lead to coma, stroke or death.
