CURRENT STATUS

NanoShunt Wireless Implant Technology:

  • NanoShunt concept is a paradigm shift in disposing of CSF fluid in hydrocephalus patients.

  • Thermodynamics, liquid transport theory, and experiments support direct dispersion and disposal of CSF by misting, evaporation, diffusion, and absorption without requiring shunt tubes.

  • In NanoShunt, disposal of CSF is via sweating (perspiration) and capillary bed absorption.

  • NanoShunt has been miniaturized  and ready for small animal study.

Superiorities of NanoShunt Over VP Shunt Method to Avoid:

  • disconnection,

  • migration,

  • occlusion,

  • pseudocyst formation and,

  • bowel injury, among others,

  • Infection.
