SinuShunt – New disruptive medical device for treatment of hydrocephalus

Project description

An innovative shunt for treating hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is a serious condition associated with the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. Treatment consists of the implantation of a shunting device to drain CSF into the chest or abdomen. The scope of the EU-funded SINUSHUNT project is to develop a novel implantable medical device that drains CSF into the sinus vein, which is a natural resorption place of CSF. The use of innovative stent technology overcomes the obstruction issues associated with conventional outlets and increases the lifetime of the shunt, reducing the need for re-operation and other complications.
