A very good result! Which type of shunt have you used? And what do you think about silastic wedge technique in syringomyelia treatment?

Thanks,I use a piece of shunt which is used for ventriculoperitoneal shunt. I am not aware of silastic wedge and I request you to tell us about it.

I have read about silastic wedge in this article. In a case I had to replace the drain (a piece of shunt, I use your technique) because it did not work any more and this was stressful due to scar. I search for someone who has some experience with silastic wedges.
