Long-term ventricular cerebrospinal fluid shunting can prove difficult in the neonatal population, particularly in those neonates who have had previous abdominal and vascular procedures. This article presents a technique of providing vascular access for ventriculoatrial shunting via the azygos vein for patients with limited vascular access and in whom ventriculoperitoneal shunting is not feasible.
