Strata NSC Adjustable Pressure Valve

Strata® NSC™ Adjustable Pressure Valve provides innovative technology for the treatment of hydrocephalus.

About the Strata NSC Adjustable Pressure Valve

The PS Medical® Strata® NSC™ Adjustable Pressure Valve is designed to provide continued cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow from the ventricles of the brain into the right atrium of the heart or the peritoneal cavity. The Strata NSC Valve allows the physician to non-invasively adjust its pressure/flow performance level setting by using a special magnetic adjustment tool without the need for X-ray confirmation to address changing patient needs.

  • Pressure/flow performance level setting can be adjusted or verified simply and non-invasively in the physician’s office with hand-held adjustment tools
  • Available in standard and small models
  • Injectable reservoir dome
  • Proximal and distal occluders for selective flushing
  • Latex free

How It Works

How the Strata NSC Shunt Works

The Strata® NSC™ Adjustable Pressure Shunt is a combination of the Strata NSC Adjustable Pressure Valve, a proximal (ventricular) catheter, and distal (peritoneal or atrial) catheter. The Strata NSC Shunt diverts excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the ventricles of the brain to another area of the body – usually the peritoneal cavity or right atrium of the heart.

The Strata NSC Adjustable Pressure Valve uses a patented technology that utilizes a magnetic rotor to adjust the tension on a ball-and-spring valve mechanism, allowing for 5 separate pressure/flow performance level settings. The pressure/flow performance level setting can be changed non-invasively by using one of the Strata Adjustment Systems.


Important Safety Information

In addition to the risks associated with any surgical procedure, such as bleeding, damage to surrounding brain tissue, seizures, stroke, or death, the following complications may also occur: obstruction of the system, infection, and mechanical malfunction leading to overdrainage. At times the common complications can provide serious risks and should be treated promptly as such. It is important to review the product labeling for complete safety information, potential complications, contraindications, and a complete explanation of warnings and precautions.
