MR or CT Scans Compatible

All the silicone based valves are designed and manufactured using polypropylene and silicone elastomer which decreases the possibility of deformation of the valves due to sticking.

None of the valves contain any metal parts which gives them the uniqueness of non-interference with MRI or CT scans. The radiopaque barium marks on the valves indicate pressure, flow direction and valve-to-catheter approximation. Furthermore, all the valves are built in with a membrane valve mechanism and incorporated with reservoirs for percutaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) access.

Antibiotic Realise Duration: 28 Days

Valves have high technology version that contains antibiotics in the silicone body of the valves. Antibiotic impregnation of the silicone body is one of a kind quality that none of the other valves in the market has. Controlled release of the impregnated antibiotics from the silicone body for a duration of 28 days is also the optimum method for prevention of infection which is one of the main problems of shunt surgery.


SILICONE SHUNT SYSTEMS ARE MANUFACTURED AND SUPPLIED IN THREE PRESSURE CATEGORIES: LOW PRESSURE, MEDIUM PRESSURE, HIGH PRESSURE.

* Please see our catalog for details.

The shunt valve is a mechanical device that regulates flow which is attained through the simple fluid dynamics that requires a pressure drop of fluid while flowing through the obstacles like orifices, and the change of flow across the sectional area is placed intentionally on the flow passage.

  • Defit Ultra Small (pediatric/infant) Shunts ( Standard Valve Body / Antibiotic Impregnated Valve Body )

Defit Ultra Small shunts are used in infants and small children during treatment of hydrocephalus, where controlled drainage of CSF is required.

  • Defit Small Shunts ( Standard Valve Body / Antibiotic Impregnated Valve Body )

Defit Small shunts are used in children and adults during treatment of hydrocephalus where controlled drainage of CSF is required.

  • Defit Regular (adult) Shunts ( Standard Valve Body / Antibiotic Impregnated Valve Body )

Defit Regular shunts are used in adults during treatment of hydrocephalus where controlled drainage of CSF is required.
