Miethke proSA Adjustable Hydrocephaus Shunt
Aesculap has released an adjustable, gravitational shunt valve, the Miethke proSA. The gravitational valve controls the flow of cerebrospinal fluid depending on whether the wearer is horizontal or upright. The physician has the option of using preset flow rates or adjusting them as needed using a compatible valve.
The flow rates for horizontal and vertical positions can be adjusted independently of each other, a feature that, according to Aesculap, should help improve the daily comfort of its users.
