Figure 7: Operative procedures executed for the management of transanal extrusion of the distal ventriculoperitoneal shunt catheter (n = 210). A: Removal of entire ventriculoperitoneal shunt catheter with or without external ventricular drainage. B: Removal of distal ventriculoperitoneal shunt catheter and proximal catheter as external ventricular drainage. C: Removal of distal ventriculoperitoneal shunt catheter and immediate relocation/revision of distal catheter. D: Removal of distal ventriculoperitoneal shunt catheter with or without other procedure. E: Removal of ventricular/proximal ventriculoperitoneal shunt catheter. F: Surgical procedure not required/not done/details not available
