US-based CereVasc has formed a partnership with LianMedical to introduce its eShunt System and related products in China.

The deal will also allow the supply of the products to patients and providers in Macaw, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The eShunt System consists of an endovascularly implantable cerebral spinal fluid shunt and associated delivery components, which will help avoid the need for general anaesthesia, invasive surgery, extended hospitalisation and post-procedure pain management.

It is intended for the significant reduction of failures linked to ventriculoperitoneal shunt systems such as catheter obstruction, over-drainage and infection.

The system provides percutaneous transvenous-transdural access to the central nervous system to enable minimally invasive treatment for communicating hydrocephalus.

It is currently under investigation and not available for sale within or outside the US.
