A VP shunt has three parts
In the programmable shunt there is a chip in the valve, which controls the pressure above, which the fluid will drain out of the brain. The pressure in the valve can be programmed and the amount of fluid drained can be decided. The pressure in the valve can be changed from outside as and when desired according to the clinical situation.
Precautions to be taken while using a programmable shunt.
