French term or phrase: drainage a contre-courant
Hello

I am unable to find this translation "counter-current drainage" so don't know where I am going wrong. please can anybody help?

Un drainage à contre-courant dans les sinus duraux peut provoquer une hypertension intracrânienne sévère, avec un risque de démence ou de cécité, et justifie un traitement agressif

Thank you!
