Shunt Surgery (Treatment of Hydrocephalous)- Shunt surgery is a common treatment for hydrocephalous, which is a condition that causes an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. This can lead to increased pressure on the brain, which can damage cells and tissues. Shunt surgery involves the placement of a tube, called a shunt, in order to divert the CSF from the brain to another part of the body, such as the abdomen or chest. Shunts are typically made from silicone and are very durable. There are two types of shunts: external and internal. External shunts drain CSF into a bag that needs to be emptied regularly. Internal shunts drain CSF directly into the abdominal cavity or chest. 

Drainage of Brain Abscesses and Cysts- A brain abscess is a localized collection of pus that forms in response to an infection in the brain. A brain cyst is a fluid-filled sac that forms on or within the brain. Drainage of a brain abscess or cyst is necessary to prevent the accumulation of pus and to improve the patient’s prognosis. Treatment for a brain abscess or cyst generally includes antibiotics, surgery, and/or radiation therapy.

Vascular Malformation- A vascular malformation is an abnormal formation of blood vessels. They can occur anywhere in the body and can be either congenital or acquired. Some common types of vascular malformations are arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), capillary telangiectasia, and lymphatic malformations.

Vascular malformations can cause a wide variety of symptoms depending on their location and size. They may cause pain, swelling, bleeding, or even seizures.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to see a neurologist who specializes in the treatment of vascular malformations. Our neurologists at Shekhawati Hospital have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating these conditions.
