This category contains images related to the ventriculoperitoneal shunt or ventriculoperitoneal drain, a neurosurgical device. It is a silicon tube surgically inserted in the human body to relieve a too high pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid (brain liquid) in the brain ventricles by allowing this excess liquid to flow to the peritoneal cavity.
