Discover the technology behind our patent-protected ReFlow™* Ventricular system, and find out what the future holds for Anuncia.

ReFlow is compatible with all hydrocephalus shunts
Hydrocephalus Association raises awareness, #nomorebs

"CSF shunts have saved the lives of thousands of children and adolescents and reduced morbidity in tens of thousands more. However, efforts to limit the frequency and potential impact of shunt failure for these patients has fallen short. Anuncia's innovative technology is designed to restore flow by mimicking the cough reflex we all use to protect our airways. It is encouraging that it works in the operating room just like it does in bench-top and in vivo studies."
