English term or phrase:shunt tap
Most shunt valves include a bulb reservoir so that surgery doesn't need to be performed to test the shunt system. The reservoir gives your neurosurgeon access to CSF in the shunt, enabling him to perform a shunt tap. A shunt tap is done by inserting a small-gauged needle through the scalp, penetrating the bulb of the reservoir.
