CODMAN® HAKIM® Programmable Valve System for Hydrocephalus

CODMAN® HAKIM® Programmable Valve System for Hydrocephalus
SiphonGuard Anti-siphon Device
SiphonGuard Anti-Siphon Device is a uniquely
new device for preventing excessive CSF flow during
positional changes. The SiphonGuard Device can
be placed anywhere distal to the valve and is
unaffected by scar tissue encapsulation or external
pressure. The mechanical design detects the difference
between the normal and excessive flow and activates
only when excessive flow occurs. Dual pathway
design allows for slow release of CSF due to
hydrostatic pressure.

The Codman Valves are implantable devices that provide constant intraventricular pressure and drainage of CSF for the management
of hydrocephalus and other conditions in which CSF flow and absorption are impaired.
SiphonGuard Device
The SiphonGuard Anti-Siphon Device never totally
closes the shunt system but instead uses resistance to
impede flow. SiphonGuard utilizes proven ball and cone
technology, which is highly reliable.
These devices are contraindicated in patients receiving anticoagulants or known to have a bleeding diathesis. Shunt implantation should
be avoided if infection is present within the body. Delay the shunt procedure when infections such as meningitis, ventriculitis, peritonitis,
bacteremia and septicemia are present. Unitized valves are not designed for atrial drainage.

The cranial cavity contains one of the most interesting hydrodynamic systems
within the human body, one that has historically engaged the attention of
both engineer and neurosurgeon in a search for a better method for treating
hydrocephalus. Physicians have traditionally been limited when faced with
choosing the right fixed pressure valve prior to implantation. Even if chosen
correctly at the time of implantation, surgical revisions may be required as the
patient’s pathophysiology changes. Basically, the patient is forced to adapt to
a fixed pressure valve.

Pumping reservoir allows for patency checks

With the advent of the Codman HAKIM Programmable Valve System,
neuro­surgeons can pre-select one of 18 different pressure settings. After
implantation, the valve can be adjusted non-invasively to adapt to changes
in patient condition. That means surgeons are able to make precise pressure
adjustments to help control intracranial pressure and ventricle size at any time.
This opens up new specialized therapies and may eliminate the unknowns which
historically complicated the treatment process.

Specially designed non-distorted stainless steel spring ensures stability and
repeatability of selected pressure.
Unlike classic silicone shunt systems which only give surgeons three pressure
ranges to choose from, the CODMAN HAKIM Programmable Valve features
18 pressure ranges. These ranges provide the surgeon with the ability to make
subtle alterations to the opening pressure. Each adjustment can be made quickly
and easily through the programmer interface. Its precise mechanical design yields
repeatable, linear pressure-flow responses. The micrometer scale (1/1000 mm)
programming motions and tightly calibrated spring tensions which give the valve
its accuracy are derived from the same microtechnology employed by the Swiss
watch industry.

Codman HAKIM Programmer
Micro Valve with Rickham Reservoir
Codman’s VPV® programmer provides confirmation of the valve adjustment
without the need for radiographic imaging when the “Adjustment
Complete” message is displayed.
Magnets and an externally applied magnetic field generated by the
programmer change the setting. The coded signal minimizes inadvertent
programming by external fields. A marker within the valve lets you verify
the setting by means of x-ray film or fluoroscopy.

•Turn on the programmer unit.
• Locate the programmable section of the valve.
•Press one of the raised buttons to choose the desired pressure.
•Place the programmer head over the valve so the feet straddle
the mechanism and the arrows align with CSF flow direction.
•Press and release the start button on the programmer head.
•Hold in place until beeps indicate programming is complete.

The same miniature manufacturing processes which make the valve accurate
also make it reliable. Only superior materials that can stand up to the conditions
evident in patients with hydrocephalus are chosen. The parts are also completely
biocompatible, with the low profile of both the full housing and micro-housing
resulting in an unobtrusive implant. Once assembled, the valves are tested
five separate times prior to release to ensure they meet stringent
performance standards.
