My daughter was twelve months old when we noticed unusual symptoms and body movements in her. We had no family history of autism, but I had sufficient knowledge about this condition. We took her to a doctor at Teknon Medical Center and discussed her symptoms. The doctor started ABA therapy for her, and it worked well. Now she is three years old, and 70% of her symptoms have been reduced. Thanks to her amazing doctor.

I got my tumor removed at Quironsalud Teknon Medical Center. Although it was a benign tumor, I was extremely worried, but the doctors at Teknon Medical Center made everything easy. I had to undergo two sessions of radiation therapy, but I am glad to announce that the tumor is gone. I am extremely grateful to ClinicsonCall for connecting me to Teknon Medical Center.

I recently had a PET MRI Scan at Teknon Medical Center, and I must say that the experience was surprisingly comfortable. From the moment I walked in, the staff made sure I felt at ease, taking the time to explain the procedure and address any concerns. The technicians were incredibly patient and understanding, making sure I was comfortable before starting the scan. The facility itself was clean and well-maintained, contributing to an overall positive experience. I appreciate the care I received at Teknon Medical Center during my scan.

My son was born with scoliosis, and his hunched back deprived him of many activities that a normal kid would do. We started searching for the treatment, but it was unavailable in our country. We decided to search abroad and found out about clinics on call through a friend. We were set up with their coordinator, who suggested we consult Dr. Bartolme Oliver. We did a thorough research on the Internet and decided to visit him. Fortunately, the doctor said it was possible to correct the scoliosis for which he did the surgery. We stayed in Spain for six months, which was worth it. Dr. Oliver was very supportive and helpful throughout our journey.

I recently underwent treatment for a spinal cyst, and I must say that the care I received at Quironsalud Hospital Madrid was exceptional. My symptoms were quite debilitating and had been affecting my quality of life for some time, but the doctors and staff at the hospital were incredibly compassionate and attentive to my needs. The diagnostic process was thorough and efficient, and my doctor explained everything to me so that I knew exactly what was happening. The treatment plan was tailored to my situation, and the surgical procedure went smoothly without complications. After the surgery, I received excellent follow-up care, with regular check-ins to monitor my progress and ensure I was recovering well. I am feeling much better now and can enjoy my daily activities without pain or discomfort. I am satisfied with the care I received and would highly recommend this hospital to anyone in need of similar treatment.

I recently experienced an Intracranial Hematoma, which was a scary and challenging situation to deal with. It started with a sudden and severe headache, followed by nausea and vomiting, and then I started feeling confused and disoriented. I was rushed to the Quironsalud Hospital Madrid, where I underwent a CT scan that showed bleeding in my brain. The doctors quickly diagnosed me with an Intracranial Hematoma and took me into surgery to remove the clot. The procedure was successful, and I am grateful to the skilled medical team that saved my life. The recovery process was not easy, as I had to spend some time in the ICU and then in a rehabilitation center to regain my strength and mobility. I also had to take medication to prevent seizures and manage my pain. Now, several months after the incident, I am still dealing with some residual symptoms, such as headaches and memory problems. However, I am slowly but surely regaining my independence and returning to my normal activities.

I recently underwent MRI-Guided Stereotactic Laser Ablation for a brain tumor at Quironsalud Madrid, and I have to say that the procedure was nothing short of amazing. The team of doctors who performed the procedure were incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, and they explained everything to me in detail so that I knew what to expect. They also ensured that I was comfortable throughout the process and that all my questions were answered. The procedure was quick and painless, and I could go home the same day. I had some mild discomfort and headache for a few days afterwards, but it was nothing that could not be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. I am incredibly grateful for the care and attention that I received.

Advantages of Getting Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt in Spain

Spain's healthcare system is well-funded, allowing access to advanced medical equipment and technology to diagnose and treat various medical conditions, including those requiring VP shunt surgery. In addition, the healthcare system in Spain invests a great deal in its research institutions that continually strive to improve healthcare outcomes.

Best Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt Clinics in Spain

  • Hospital Universitari Sagrat Cor is known for its state-of-the-art technology, including Philips Ingenuity computed tomography and Tesla magnetic resonance.
  • Quironsalud Valencia Hospital, one of the top 20 hospitals in Spain, is regarded as the most technologically sophisticated hospital in the Valencian region.

Best Doctors for Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt in Spain

  • Dr. Bartolome Oliver Abadal is a very accomplished neurosurgeon. In his career, he has executed more than 200 successful brain operations.
  • Dr. Josep Dalmau Obrador is a distinguished Spanish neurosurgeon who received the Ray Jaime I Award in 2017 and a career achievement award in 2013.

Indications for Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt

Some common indications for a VP shunt include:

  • Congenital hydrocephalus (type of hydrocephalus that is present at birth).
  • Acquired hydrocephalus (a type of hydrocephalus that can develop due to an injury or illness).
  • Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) (a type of hydrocephalus that typically affects older adults and is characterized by the gradual buildup of CSF in the brain's ventricles).
  • Pseudotumor cerebri (a condition characterized by increased pressure of CSF in the brain).
  • Recurrent meningitis (infection of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord).

Tests Before Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt in Spain

  • Brain imaging

It may include a CT scan or MRI of the brain to evaluate the size and location of the ventricles and to look for any abnormalities or other factors contributing to the hydrocephalus.

  • Neurological examination

It may involve a series of tests to evaluate the individual's cognitive and motor functions, as well as their reflexes and sensation.

  • Blood tests

These may check for any underlying medical conditions or infections that could affect the procedure's outcome.

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)

It is a test that measures the heart's electrical activity and may evaluate the individual's overall cardiovascular health.

  • Pulmonary function tests

Doctors may recommend it for individuals with a history of lung disease or breathing problems to ensure they can tolerate anesthesia and the surgical procedure.

  • Anesthesia evaluation

Before the procedure, an anesthesiologist will typically evaluate the individual's overall health and medical history and any medications they may be taking to determine the safest and most effective anesthesia plan.

How to Prepare for Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt?

Here are some general tips on how to prepare for a VP shunt procedure:

  • Follow any pre-operative instructions (this may include dietary restrictions, medication adjustments, or other preparations).
  • Arrange for transportation to and from the hospital.
  • Coordinate with your family members, friends, or caregivers in advance to assist you with daily activities.
  • Avoid eating or drinking several hours before the surgery.
  • Discuss any medications or supplements with your healthcare provider.
  • Bring any necessary medical information or documents.
  • Wear comfortable clothing.
  • It is essential to discuss any questions or concerns with your healthcare provider before the procedure to ensure that you are fully prepared and understand what to expect.

How is Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt Done in Spain?

Before the surgery, the specialist administers general anesthesia to the individual to ensure they are comfortable and sedated. The Spanish surgical team will then clean and sterilize the area around the surgical site.

A surgeon will make a small incision in the scalp and drill a small hole into the skull to access the brain's ventricles.

Then a surgeon will carefully introduce a VP shunt consisting of a long, flexible tube through the hole in the skull and into one of the brain's ventricles. The tube is then tunneled under the skin, down the neck, and into the abdominal cavity.

The surgeon then connects the end of the shunt inside the brain to a one-way valve that regulates the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow through the shunt. They also place the other end of the shunt into the peritoneal cavity of the abdomen, where the excess CSF can be absorbed into the bloodstream and eliminated from the body.

The incision is closed with stitches or surgical staples. VP shunt surgery usually takes about 1-3 hours to complete.

What Happens After Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt?

After a ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt procedure, there is a period of recovery and ongoing management to ensure the shunt works effectively. It includes:

  • Post-operative monitoring (entails monitoring vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation).
  • Pain management.
  • Shunt function monitoring through imaging tests such as CT scans or MRIs.
  • Management of complications (such as infection, bleeding, and shunt malfunction).
  • Rehabilitation to help regain strength and function.

Risks of Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt in Spain

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt surgery in Spain. Some of the possible risks and complications include:

  • Infection.
  • Bleeding.
  • Shunt malfunction.
  • Overdrainage of CSF leads to neurological symptoms such as confusion, difficulty walking, and vision problems.
  • CSF leak.
  • Mechanical failure (shunt may break, migrate, or disconnect).
  • Allergic reactions.
  • Nerve damage, seizures, and anesthesia-related complications.

Reviews about ventriculoperitoneal (vp) shunt in Spain

Aria Nikki, Mexico:
Went to Hospital Universitari Sagrat Cor to get VP shunt. The surgery went well without complications, and I am happy with their services.

FAQs

Is ventriculoperitoneal shunt permanent?

In most cases, ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunts are permanent. However, VP shunts may sometimes need to be revised, adjusted, or replaced over time. Shunt malfunction, blockage, or infection are some reasons why the shunt may need to be repaired or replaced. Additionally, children who receive VP shunts may outgrow the shunt and require a larger size as they grow.

What is the difference between LP and VP shunt?

Both lumbar puncture (LP) and ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt procedures manage conditions that involve an excess buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. LP is typically used as a diagnostic tool to evaluate conditions such as meningitis, multiple sclerosis, and intracranial pressure. In contrast, VP shunts generally are used to treat conditions such as hydrocephalus.
