The purpose

Complications in patients with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts are common. Thus, these patients are frequently admitted for suspicion of a shunt dysfunction (SD). However, the symptoms of a SD are often unspecific and the required diagnostics are time consuming, expensive, invasive and may involve radiation exposure. In a prospective observational study it is planned to find out, how often a suspected shunt dysfunction is found, which kinds of shunt dysfunction are seen and if there is a correlation between the shunt dysfunctions and the age of the shunt. Furthermore, it is intended to find out, if there are symptom-patterns specific for certain shunt dysfunctions.
