 +In multisegment VPS systems, the weakest points for [[shunt disconnection]] are connector site, connector to the [[ventricular catheter]], and [[connector]] to [[chamber]] site. The causes for shunt disconnection in the multisegment VPS system are excessive [[traction]] movements at the cranial end, poor [[fixation]] at the [[cranial]] site, and [[break]] in [[ligature]]s. VPS disconnection is not always associated with [[shunt malfunction]], and in such cases, the entire VPS system can be safely removed. VPS system disconnection associated with other [[ventriculoperitoneal shunt]] [[complications]] that occurred in the same patient at the same time has also been reported in the [[literature]]
