  • Possible causes?
    • Genetic abnormality
    • Can be caused by injury or disease
  • Treatment
    • Insert shunt system where a tube is inserted, which directs the CSF from the CNS to another area of the body to be drained and absorbed. This system also regulates the CSF flow rate
  • Prognosis
    • If detected early enough and treated, may be able to live a normal life
berlin heart excor pediatric ventricular device pad
Berlin heart EXCOR Pediatric Ventricular Device (PAD)
  • Why use a Berlin?
    • The pediatric patients who have this are on the heart transplant list.
    • Needed to sustain life (temporarily)
  • Prognosis
    • Studies show that 43 of 48 patients survived from either a cardiac transplant or being slowly taken off of the PAD
    • Overtime the ventricles become stronger over time and does not need the assistance of the machine
