Abstract

Replacement of a catheter draining an intracranial cyst or a ventricle can be difficult if the fluid space has collapsed. An intracranial catheter which can be safely and accurately exchanged is described. The catheter also offers an advantage during the original placement if the fluid cavity to be drained has a thick wall.
