To complete its range of hydrocephalus valves and catheters, Sophysa also offers a range of accessories, which gives the possibility to the neurosurgeons to better adapt the shunts to the patient's needs.
The Sophysa accessories can be split into three categories:
- Gravitational anti-siphon: a new addition to the range, designed to limit the siphon effect during cerebrospinal fluid drainage.
- Reservoirs: placed upstream a valve, a reservoir is used to get an access to CSF in a shunt either for CSF sampling or to inject fluid in the shunt.
- In addition to these accessories meant to customize a shunt, Sophysa also offers accessories to make the operative gesture easier.
