The cause of the right occipital intraparenchymal hemorrhage in our patient remains unknown; the mechanism could have been the erosion of a surface or deeper cerebral blood vessel secondary to a close contact between the tubing and the blood vessel, as the cases described by Savitz 18 and Snow The CT angiogram revealed a right pericallosal artery aneurysm 2.

Intracerebral hematoma from aneurysm rupture.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation DIC has been reported after head trauma 8,13brain tumor surgery 6 and VP shunting You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.

Delayed intracerebral hemorrhage after CSF shunt for communicating “normal-pressure” hydrocephalus. Loading Stack – 0 images remaining. We can think in favour of this mechanism because no hemorrhagic CSF was observed following intraparenquimatoosa of the lateral ventricle and the first CT scan performed after the shunting procedure didn’t demonstrate any intracerebral hemorrhage.

Articles Cases Courses Quiz. Fukamachi et al performed CT scans on patients within the first week of ventricular shunting procedures intraparenqiimatosa and found that ten of them had small intracerebral hematomas 3 cm maximal diameter ; they didn’t offer any explanation for the one moderate-sized hematoma in their series.


CT scan performed fifteen days after the clipping of the aneurysm. Here we report another case of this unusual complication, review the previous literature about cerebral hemorrhagic complications after ventricular shunting procedures and discuss the supposed causative factors and mechanisms involved in this infrequent event.

Spontaneous intratumoral hemorrhage after ventriculoperitoneal shunting. Bleeding disorder, tumor, occult vascular malformation or head trauma were not the cause of this event as clinical examination, laboratory tests and radiological studies determined. Low incidence of delayed intracerebral hemorrhage secondary to ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion.

Postoperative CT scan performed 24 hours following ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion that showed no decreased ventricular size compared with the previous imaging study.

Experimental in vivo microcirculatory dynamics in brain trauma. The third postoperative CT scan performed five daysafter the ventriculoperitoneal shunt insertion revealed a right occipital intraparenchymal hemorrhage along the path of the ventricular catheter and into the ventricular system; ventricular size remained without changes.

The subsequent improvement was slight; she remained conscious, with open eyes, but without verbal response and submission. Complications of cerebrospinal fluid CSF ventricular shunting have been reported 19,23 a lot of years ago, such as infections, shunt malfunction, subdural hematomas, seizures, migrating catheter, kinked tubing.

The system of drainage obstructed repeatedly and the ventricular catheter was inserted in the left frontal horn and in the right temporal horn of the lateral ventricles subsequently. Intratumoral hemorrhage after a ventriculoperitoneal shunting procedure. The Getafe Universitary Hospital.

Results and complications in 55 patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus. She initially did quite well, although very slowly.

Intracerebral hematoma from aneurysm rupture.

Current diagnosis and treatment in neurology. Journal of Neurosurgery ; 3: Another possible factor we think could have influence it is the handling of the valve system; the patient intraparejquimatosa five days after changing its opening pressure from mmH 2 O to 80mmH 2 O ; nevertheless, the ventricular size didn’t reduce following the manipulation of the valve, as the CT scan performed at the moment of the deterioration demonstrated.


Shunt failures and complications in adults as related to shunt type, diagnosis and intrxparenquimatosa experience of the surgeon. On the other hand, intratumoral hemorrhage has been described following ventricular cannulation 24,25, Italian Journal of Neurological Sciences ; Negative intracranial pressure hydrocephalus inttraparenquimatosa adults with shunts and its relationship to the production of subdural hematoma.

She was brought because of transient loss of conciousness for several minutes following a sudden headache in the morning. This time the patient didn’t well; 24 hours later she remained with closed eyes, absence of verbal response and localizing to painful stimulus.

Matsumura et al 15 described the case of a 17 yearold boy who developed a marked ventricular dilatation two years after an operation for a traumatic intracerebral hematoma. The new CT scan Figure 5 revealed a right occipital intraparenchymal hematoma, around the ventricular catheter, with opening to the ventricular system and ventricular size without changes. CT scan showing a widespread subarachnoid hemorrhage within basal cisterns, both silvian fissures and an interhemispheric hematoma.
