Sophysa offers a complete range of neurosurgical implants for the treatment of hydrocephalus: fixed and adjustable pressure valves, reservoirs, catheters and accessories designed to drain CSF from the brain ventricles to another body cavity.
Adjustable valves represent the most advanced type of valves for the care of hydrocephalus patients. Indeed, they offer the possibility to the neurosurgeons of adjusting the operating pressure non-invasively, to match an individual patient's clinical needs.
Two adjustable valves are available from Sophysa: the Sophy® Mini valve and the Polaris® valve, which has the additional feature of being MRI-stable.
Monopressure valves are fixed pressure valves, which means their operating pressures cannot be changed.
Two types of monopressure valves are available from Sophysa. One based on a ball-in-cone mechanism, well-known for its precision and reliability, and another one based on a silicone elastomer membrane calibrated to low, medium or high pressure.
Sophysa offers a complete range of catheters to connect to the valves: intraventricular catheters to be connected upstream the valve, distal catheters to be connected downstream the valve, and lumbo-peritoneal catheters to allow lumbo-peritoneal shunting.
Various accessories allow to complete the shunt, according to the patient's needs and the neurosurgeon's practice.
- A gravitational anti-siphon device, SiphonX®; - A full range of reservoirs; - Various connectors for catheters.
