Depus Quick Response shunt is designed to regulate and sustain the intra-ventricular pressure (IVP) of the patient via controlled drainage of the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid).
The shunt has two versions according to intention of use: ventriculoperitoneal and lumboperitoneal.
The mechanism within the shunt is triggered by positive ventricular pressure and the valve opens immediately. The ruby ball and the titanium spring valve are the essentials of this adjustable system that works on the theory of hydrodynamic leverage. The shunt body is designed to ave uniquely smaller dimensions than its competitors. Inner diameter of the valve is 10 mm, outer diameter is 13,5 mm and the length is 16 mm.
Depus Quick Response shunt is also designed with aninfection-preventing version which includes an antibiotic impregnated silicone cover.
This antibiotic impregnated body design of the Depus valve is unique in thecurrent shunt market.
Controlled release of the impregnated antibiotics from the silicone body for 28 days is also the ultimate method for infection prevention, which is one of the main problems of shunt surgery.
