Caption: Shunt in the head of a patient with hydrocephalus, the abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles (cavities) of the brain. The shunt (protrusion seen at centre) is a type of catheter (tube) that prevents the fluid from accumulating by diverting the fluid away from the head.
